Will lead parish 
in Philadelphia 

By Mary Ford 


When 'the Very Rev f: 
Clifford Coda talks about 
home, ii's hard lo believe he 
doesn't mean Cohasset 

But the fact is the pastoi ol Si 
Stephen's Church grew up in the 
Philadelphia area, a location lhal 
Is still very close lo his heart 

So as it happened, when a 
church in Philadelphia co nt a c ted 
him last summei about the pi issi- 
bility of leading its congregation 
S it was an opportunity lhal 
Culler thought he should lake a 
bok at. Now Cutler. 56. who has 
been at St Stephen's for some 
i I years, is literally coming full 

" He's leaving Cohasset — a 
town he has grown to love and 
where he raised his family to 
return to his roots and a chance- 
to build another parish heloie he- 
reaches retirement age in a 
decade or so 
During HI iftten icw this week.

of Cohasset" 

— The Very Rev E Clifford Culler 

Cutler, who is affectionately 
known a- C'lill. " talked about 

recent improvements to St. 

Stephen's, a town landmark, 
with immense pride A memori- 
al garden is taking shape and a 
new elevator will soon be 
installed lo make the levels 
between the church and parish 
house accessible 10 all This is 
going on amid other construe - 
tion lo ensure the venerable 
sum. lure serves its flock well 
inlo the 2 1 si century and 

During ihe interview, melodic 
sounds from music lessons 
being given upstairs in the parish 
house- tiaveled down the stair 
case and through Ihe hallways to 
ihe silting room near Cutler's 
office With Us world-class caril- 
lon and VIHUl-pipe organ. St. 
Stephen's tradition is firmly 

anchored in music. 

St. Stephen's, an Episcopal 
church, is also a special place 
with a strong sense of history 
Culler has never lost sight of 
that, he has been al the helm ul 
the church during the IMh 
anniversary of the carillon and I 
few years later, the centennial o| 
the church itself, both ol which 
were celebrations that drew 
folks from the entire town and 

Cutler has also been a volun- 
teer in town government, serv- 
ing for many years on the drug 
and alcohol committee whose 
legacy today is Project 
Safeguard, a program lhal works

Flynn, Sullivan 
won't seek reelection 

By Samantha Brown 


The board of selectmen and 
School committee will lose two 
very familiar faces this year as 
Michael Sullivan and Rick Flynn 
have decided not to seek another 

; Nomination papers for the elec- 
tion, scheduled for April 8. 
became available Tuesday. Jan. 3 
and both Sullivan and l-lynn said 
while they have enjoyed the 
work they have done on their 
lespective boards, they feel it is 
lime to encourage new members 
of the community to become 
jnvolved and share their ideas. 
; Sullivan has been an active vol- 
pnteer in town for the past |S 
years. He served on the board of 
health from 1988 to IW2. pnor 
to serving on the hoard of select- 
men for two terms from IW2- 
1998. He ran for selectman again 
in 2(KK) and wis reelected in 

Sullivan said he hopes an open 
seat w ill encourage others to run. 
"We have accomplished a lot in 
the last 10 years." as a tow n, said 
Sullivan, noting la-sh ideas can 
help keep the town moving in a 
positive direction. He said dur- 
ing his tenure, he saw the schools 
rebuilt as well as a new infra- 
structure built for the town. 
Through it all Cohassel continues 
to receive high-marks as being a 
well-run town, he said, adding he 
has been proud to serve 

While lie will not official!) he a 
member of the board of select- 
men alter the e .•etion. Sullivan 
said he is open 10 the possibility 
ol volunteering in another capac- 
ity in the future. 

"There are new zoning issues 

thai have been brought forth," he 
said, relerring to the new plans 
Irom the economic development 
committee, and he thinks the 
issues which have been brought 
up are very interesting. He said 
light now there arc not man> 
capital projects on the hon/on, 
and the town's focus is on grow- 

ing revenue, and that might be 
something he would like to 
become involved with. 

But for now. Sullivan will 
spend the next few months carry- 
ing out his duties on the hoard of 
selectmen and lor those li Hiking 
to fill his seat. Sullivan has some 
advice. "You have to dedicate a 
lair amount of time for it, you 
have to have a thick skin, you 
have to be able to work with a 
team and build consensus, and 
there has to be something about 
the role that really creates enthu- 
siasm," he said. 

After the election, Flynn will 
have an open schedule on 
Thursday nights as he will no 
longer he required to sit in from 
ol the school committee cameras 
as he has for the past six years 
However, he said these last 
months on the board will be cru- 
cial as there are some very 
important items of business thai 
need to he accomplished "We 
have a budget to be put together, 
and I'd like to have the teachers' 
contract completed." he said. 
However, he said whomever 
takes his place, he knows ihc 
hoard will be in good hands with 
Supt. ol Schools IX-nise Walsh at 
the helm. 

Before serving on the school 
committee. Flynn spent six years 
on the advisory committee. "I 
was going to take lime Off," he

Flynn said even without serv- 
ing nn the school committee he 
will still he very busy, but added

to stay involved (in volunteering 
for the community) W some 
degree It's greal to be involved 
and know whal's going on." he 
said. However. Flynn said lie

Committee finds creative ways to boost tax revenue 

Eyes loosening parking requirements 

By Samantha Brown 


Over the past ihrce months, at 
the direction of the board of 
selectmen, the economic devel- 
opment committee has been 
brainstorming for ideas to 
boost commercial tax revenue 
for Cohassel. In that short 
time, the group has come up 
wrth a total of 20 different 
ways to increase the money 
coming into the town, some of 
which could come up as arti- 
cles at the Annual Town 

Chairman Peter Brown, who 
presented the committee's rec- 
ommendations Tuesday, said 
there are six recommendations 
which should be taken up first. 
Of those six, three arc goals 
which should be accomplished 
within the next three months. 
He presented drall Warrant 

articles lor five of the recom- 
mendations for the hoard's 

"This is a lot to In to bring in 
the floor ml Town Meeting) in 
April.'' said selectman Michael 
Sullivan Ol the articles, hut 
overall the board agreed the 
recommendations ,ne worth 
carefulK considering. 

BfOWO said the most impor- 
tant change the committee 
would like In see lake place til 
reducing the COIIUTKICtal park- 
ing requirement From 10 to five 
parking spaces pet 1.000 
square lect ol public space in 
the highway, technology, and 
light industrv business dis- 
tricts. The committee lee Is the 
cuTrcnt parking requirements 
leave loo much unused, 
as parking lots are never lull, 
and that space '.mild be used lo 
help encourage development. 

especially along Rte. 3A. 

Engineer Neil Murphy 
attended the meeting with the 
committee and said in his pro- 
fessional opinion, "Ten per 
l.tXX) square feet is extremely 
excessive. It is probably the 
worst parking regulation I've 
ever seen." adding while he 
thinks five spaces per I. (XX) is 
still excessive, it is more rea- 
sonable. He said not onlv does 
the regulation dictate what can 
be built on the site, it impedes 
the addition of greenspace. 

Planning board member 
Mike Westcott. who is an ex- 
offlcio member ol the growth 
and development committee, 
said he could mils speak for 
hinisell. hut from a planning 
standpoint, he feels there are 
acres of unused parking in 
town that could be developed 
and therefore help increase lax 
revenue. He said lie lias had 
inlorrnal discussions with other 
members ol the planning board 
and thinks some -hare his 
vicvv point. 

Murphy added every 
Christmas there are at least 20 
parking space* dedicated lo 
selling Christmas trees in the 
Cohassel Pla/a parking lot. 
which in his opinion paints a 
very clear picture of the park- 
ing situation there. 

The committee also recom- 
mended increasing building 

height, lot coverage, and struc- 
tural building coverage in the 
highway, technology and light 
industry business districts. 
Brawrj said the changes v\ i II 
allow lor mora creative archi- 
tectural designs, and the busi- 
nesses which currcntl> exist 
will have an Opportunity in 

Committee member Thorn 
Powers said there are many 
people in town that have small 
satellite offices, but as their 
businesses grow, the town can 
no longer accommodate them. 
"People leave because they 
don't have anywhere to expand 
in town. We know we're not 
taking advantage ol thai." he 
said. By increasing Ihe build- 
ings the town already has. and 
allowing for more develop- 
ment, the town will be able to 
provide the space lo fulfill that 
need for its residents as well as 
increase its commercial lax 
base. The town charges taxes 
b> the square loot, and there- 
fore larger buildings allow for 
more tax revenue 

Another recommendation is 

10 approve the use of a transit 
oriented district (TOD) lo pro 
mole commercial development 
in the highway, technology, 
and light industry business dis- 
tricts With the train coming to 
town, the Committee says it 

makes sense lo increase the 

denSit) 61 development and 
allow more mixed use build 
ings near the new means ol 

transportation* f he TOD 

would encompass rough!) one 
quarter of a mile surroundine 
the train station, and the com 

mi tree said its goal i- to build 

more shops and fierviceS that 
would likely be used by train 
Commuters, Mich a- dry clean 
mg and day care 
The board ol selectmen said 

11 shared one ol the Commit- 
tee's goals: getting the town to 
adopt Ms draft master plan 

While mans committees have 
been using the tlULStCl plan as il 
it ha* been adopted, without 
FOrmaJ approval In ihe plan- 
ning board, it* words mean 
nothing Westcott sjjd Ihe 

"Ten per 1,000 square feet is extremely 
excessive. K is probably the worst parking 
regulation I've ever seen." 

— Neil Murphy, engineer 

planning board will have a 
final hearing on the plan soon 
and ii will be formal!) adopted 
by Ihe hoard. 


While many ol ihe commit 

ice's recommendations dcaJ 

with development On Rte. 3A, 
one specifically deals wuh 
growth downtown There is a 
45,783 square foot parcel of 
land located behind ihe Bed 
Lion Inn in Ihe municipal park 
ing lot which is currently the 
site ol the Teen (iarage. The 
committee said there js ledge 
behind the building which 
could be blasted to allow lor 
new structure lo be built in 
place ol the garage The new 
building could serve as a park 
ing garage as well as j poten- 
tial new site foi teen activities 
If this plan is carried out. it 
must take pi. H . sooner rather 
than later* ■> Masting will not 
be allowed orart the train is 

Tile last ol ihe most urgent 
recommendations is lo hire a 
lull-time (bvttl Planner to help 
euide and manage the tOWn'j 
anticipated commercial and 
re idential growth However 
TOWn Manager Bill (iiillm

exhibit opens 
at Art Center 

: By Matt Whorf 


CSue DeMichele's Lift- in 
landscape found its life main- 
ly in the coastal waterways and 
iocky ledges of New England. 
In the words of her own artist 
statement, she applied vigorous 
tookes, layering, and mark 
making — with her chosen 
media of oils and pastels — to 
Scflect the energy she found in 
flie magnificent landscape and 
interpret a moment now lost in 

DeMichele. who lived in 
Cohasset. also applied her 
painting cralt as a member of 
the town's South Shore Art 
Center community, us both a 

"Susan had a 
great love for 


she always tried to 
work on-site." 

— Don DeMichele 

gallery artist and member (.1 
the faculty. She is remembered 
for the spirit ol eagerness and 
generosity she brought to man> 
art center activities and events 
up until her death from cancer 
at age 56 in October, 2002. 

The artist left behind a pro- 
lific wealth of oil and pastel 
paintings as well as additional 
pastel and acrylic works span- 
ning a 30-year career. Much of 
the best of these will go on

DeMichele Retrospective: A 
Life in Landscape, the center's 
first major exhibit of this year 
opening l-riday in its main 
Bancroft Oallerv ,md running 
through Feb. 19. 

"Sue DeMichele loved life, 
and she loved the world around 
her. She looked to the land- 
scape for inspiration and sub- 
ject, and her artistic purpose 
was to capture and express 
moments of the beauty, energy, 
and promise ol tranquility she 
found there," Mated curators 
JnAnnc Chittick. of Cohasset. 
and Penny Myles. <>| Hingham, 
in their official -tjtement for 
the exhibit. 

The curators' statement also 
describes some ol the artist's 
favorite subjects to he featured 
prominently in the how Such 
as, mod) dunes in Nantucket; 
rocky ledges, shoreline and 
marshes in Cohasset; islands, 
pines, sea and sk> in coastal 
Maine as well as the farm 
DeMichele viewed from her 
kitchen window al hci home on 
Jerusalem Road and the ice 
pond in the woods also nearby. 

The show is presented to 
cover the full spectrum ol 
DeMichele s work which mar- 
ginally included a handful of 
abstract exploration? n\ acrylic, 
but mainly was influenced by 
the classic European 
Impressionism «ylc. especially 
that of the artist's two favorite 
painlers: Monet and Van Gogh. 
DeMichele even everted some 
influence »l her own during her 
lifetime, as demonstrated by 
the show's companion exhibit.

A Few wrote thank you notes to the people of Cohasset or 
Organizations for their help or support; others complained about 
a decision or lobbied to ha\e their views considered: while still 
others educated us about programs, problems or activities.

yrour views with your fellov citizens is important. The First

The editorial pages of the Cohasset Mariner belong to you. It's 
where you can speak out or just say thank you to a citizen or 
group that went beyond the call of duty. 

Sometimes it takes a good dose of courage to let your voice be 
heard, but we think it's worth it. Often one voice is all the inspi- 
ration needed to propel others to action. 

Last year, the Cohasset Mariner received 210 letters from 156 
different people, groups or organizations. 

To those of you that have thought about writing and haven't, 
please reconsider. To those whom we hear from on a regular 
basis, keep writing! 

There are lots of weeks to go in the New Year — which will 
be' filled with events, decisions, happenings and controversy. 
Let us hear what you think in 2006.

Outraged over 
vacht club 'cover no' 

To THE Editor: 

Where is the outrage? 

As a former member of the Cohasset Yacht 
Club 1 1986-2003). I believe I am entitled to 
speak out about the apparent recently admit- 
ted embezzlement of nearly S500.000 from 
the Club by its former accountant! 

In what appears to be an ongoing attempt to 
cover up this grossly unacceptable behavior, 
the CYC is implicitly a co-conspirator to 
defraud its members. Where is the outrage.' 

Just when we. the citizens of our town, 
began to hope we were beyond the many 
scoundrels, scandals, embezzlements and 
misbehaviors. Cohasset is once again embar- 
rassed and besmirched by leaders with miss- 
ing moral compasses. Where is the outrage .' 

Prosecutors in Norfolk County should 
investigate this matter to the fullest extent of 
the law and ask over and over again the ques- 
tion that Sen. Howard Baker asked during the 
Watergate hearings in 1973: "What did you 
know and when did you know it?" Where is 
the outrage? 

How much must the citizens of Cohasset 
endure as we are once again the butt of jokes 
that show us as a town that thinks itself supe- 

rior to surrounding communities. Where is 
the outrage? 

Every person who is in a current leadership 
position at CYC who is complicit in accept- 
ing the supposed mea culpa pay-back 
scheme from the alleged embezzler should 
resign forthwith. Where is the outrage?

Tree pickup this weekend 

To nth Editor: 

The Project Safeguard Committee does 
many things for the school to inform students 
about the effects of drugs and alcohol. At this 
lime, they are in need of our help so the 
Middle School Student Council is having a 
Christmas tree drive to benefit them. 

On Jan. 7 and Jan. 8 students from the 
Cohasset Middle School will be driven by 
their parents around Cohasset to pick up 
Christmas trees. The cost for them to pick up 
your tree is $15 orSIO if you're a senior cit- 
izen. Trees will be picked up either 8 a.m. to 
2 p.m. on Saturday or 1 1 a.m. to 3 p.m. on 
Sunday. All you have to do is contact the 
Cohasset Teen Center at (781 ) 383-2492 and 
leave a message with your name and address. 
If you have a child or children in the mid- 

dle school they're encouraged to help. 
Remind them to sign up during lunch to help. 
All the students are asked to do is drag the 
trees from the customer's yard to the road 
where they'll be picked up and brought to the 
dump. After they help, they can go to the 
Teen Center for pizza and other refreshments. 
Have their friends join, too. Have a safe and 
Happy New Year!

Peary caribou are endangered 

To mi EurtoR: 

Unfortunately. I have a sad footnote to add 
to my recent article about the Peary caribou 
in the "On the Wild Side" column. Now that 
the press of a deadline is off and I have had 
time to research further. 1 learn that the Peary ' 
have been an Endangered Species since 
2002-2003. It is believed 85 per cent have 
disappeared, and estimates of remaining 
Peary range from under 2.000 to about 10-

King Street grade crossing 
not ready for prime time yet 

T( w Gruiis & Mark Brinnan 

Well, here we are a New Year wilh 
a lots of new Greenbush related items 
ahead of us in 2006. First, let us say 
that we welcome everyone's com- 
ments about the project. We are con- 
stantly amazed at the feedback we get 
about our updates information pre- 
sented in these pages. Thank you for 
your favorable comments. But, we 
welcome your comments both favor- 
able and critical. We are here to help 
you and get the best that we can for 

So wilh that said, what's in store for 
Cohasset? Well, the MBTA wants to 
get the King Street crossing finished 
as quickly as possible. In fact, they 
would like to open King Street before 
it is actually completed. But, we feel 
that opening the crossing before it is 
finished may not be in the Town's 
best interests. A substandard roadway 
around the King Street crossing that 
will deteriorate rapidly and will be 
lough to maintain and will not serve 
us well. Especially, since closing 
l Sher crossings will increase the King 
Street traffic beyond what it normally 
carries This w ill cause a larger prob- 
lem, long term and we are meeting 
with the project to try and avoid 
future problems in this area. 

We have also asked the MBTA and 
their contractor what their schedule is 
for the other crossings that will he 
closed for construction such as ; 
Spring/Pond. Pleasant and Sohier. 
plus North Main at the Woodside 
( crnelcry. We are awaiting their 
answer and will present it here as 
SOon as we know. Please he advised 
that there is a nsk here as we provide 
sc hedules contingent on weather, par- 
ticularly this time of year. So we all 
need to be aware thai delays arc 
inherently possible given the nature 
of the work. 

As we write this, the side walls lor 
the Rocky I-ane bridge are starting 10 
rise from their loundatioas. Take a 
look as vou drive along North Main 


Other projects 

You may be interested to know thai 
tlje Tow n Manager has asked us to gel 
involved in several other protects that 
are peripherally related to the 
Greenbush project or involve areas 
specifically funded by our MBTA 

Mitigation funds. 

For example, part of the Cohassel 
Mitigation funds have been ear- 
marked to address some of the prob- 
lems associated with the James Brook 
watershed. By way of review, James 
Brook starts near Lower King Street 
and North Main Street at Sanctuary 
Pond, flows approximately parallel to 
N. Main Street into Town al Smith 
Place, where it goes underground and 
flows into Jacob's Meadow, behind 
the village area where it joins with 
Stewart Brook. As both brooks join in 
the meadow they then flow lo the har- 
bor at (he Legion building and out 
through the Self Regulating Tide Gale 
(SRT). Last spring we found thai the 
SRT was not working properly. It is 
designed to shut at high tide so that 
Jacobs Meadow does nol flood. But 
al low :ide il opens so thai the waters 
from Jacobs Meadow can exit to the 
harbor. At mid tide, it is designed to 
be open so that sail waler can flush 
into Jacobs Meadow and create a salt 
waler marsh rather than a fresh w ater 

The SRT was not adjusted properly 
so thai there was insufficient salt 
waler flushing inlo Jacobs Meadow. 
There is a delicate balance that needs 
to be achieved so lhat saltwater is per- 
mitted into the meadow during every 
tide cycle, yet flooding of the mead- 
ow is avoided. This balanced 
approach was dictated by the Army 
Corps of Engineers when Ihe gate 
was commissioned by the Town in 
the fall of 2003. We worked with an 
engineering firm, the Harbor Health 
Committee and the DPW to make the 
necessary repairs to Ihe SRT so lhal H 
now better performs its intended 

We have provided input to the 
Board of Health for their recent grant 
award to study pollution sources from 
tames Brook inlo the harbor. We have 
been asked to be a pan of the over- 
sight function lor this critical study, 
working with the Board ol Health, the 
Harbor Health Committee, the 
Cohassel Center lor Student Coastal 
Research, and others While this will 
be a long term commitment for the 
Town, ihe smart use of these gram 
funds will ultimately lead to a clean- 
er, healthier harbor. 


A little over a y ear ago in Ihe summci 
of 2(XM. a construction project was 
undertaken to improve the flow 
through James Bn>ok in the area ol 

Pleasant Street. This project simply 
increased the underground waler car- 
rying capacity of the James Brook cul- 
vert which in turn reduced Ihe chance 
of flooding in Ihe area between Smith 
Place and Pleasant Street The box cul- 
ver! under ihe railroad right of way 
was also upgraded to allow for better 
flow. Although when we arrived, this 
project w as generally considered com- 
plete, there were a few small items thai 
had been missed by Ihe firm doing 
project oversight on behalf ol the 
Town. We worked with the design 
engineer and the contractor to resolve 
these items so the project could he 
declared officially complete. The sev- 
eral major Storm) lhal Ihe Town expc 
rienced this year caused no Hooding in 
this area which indicates lhal this pro- 
ject has been eftcctive so far. This pre 
jeci also had ucs to ihe Revttalization 
Project lo be djscUMed lalcr. 

As the Greenbush project pro- 
gressed, there were some drainage 
issues al Lower King and North Main 
streets thai would nol be addressed hv 
ihe project A new storm-water catch 
basin had li I be designed and built by 
the Town in this area. The "instant" 
project had to he done quickly as 
North Main Street was about lo he 
resurfaced as part ol a Waler 
IX-partmeni project We obtained the 
services of an engineering linn lor the 
design and then had the catch basin, 
pipe and manhole constructed, all 

within a three week lime Frame, 

Recent rain events have allowed us lo 
observe thai this drainage is working

How flu spreads around the world 

By Steve Bo bo 


As federal, stale and private organiza-

portation So they work well lor. per

modem disease migration is ihe trans- 
portation system which acts as both a 
vector and as an incubator, moving large 
numbers of people while holding them 
in close proximity for several hours or 
days. The 'Spanish Flu" event of I U I8

Cohasset seniors are 'cooked' when it comes to affordable units 

vide much needed affordable 
senior housing for Cohassel res- 
idents, the restrictions ol Ihe 
SMROD bylaw vvill mosi likely 
prevent Cohassel residents from 
living in an\ affordable units i>' 
be built. 

To quality for affordable 
housing, the slate has set certain 
regulations. There BR asset and 
Income guidelines lo be met. 
and while some Cohassel 
seniors might pass the income 
test, with Ihe wax real estate 
sells in Cohasset. Engler said it 
is virtually impossible for a 
senior to sell his of her home 
and not come away with more 
money than is allowed 10 he 
able to rent or purchase an 
attordable unit. "There never 
used to be an asset test, only 
income.'' he said, but the regu- 
lations tor affordable housing 
are .onstantly changing. 

Seniors who wish to live in 
affordable ownership housing 
must not have more than 
S2(K).IXX) in equity, which with 
the sale ol a home in Cohasset 
is nearly impossible. In add! 
tion. they nuisl not have WW 
than $50,000 in olhei assets. 
Lngler said thea-fore. to pur- 
chase an affordable unit "you 
need H sell and have nothing." 

In addition unless everyone 
in the household is i<2 years oj 
more, they may not have owned 
a home within the past three 
years in order to qualih 10 pur 

Seniors who wish 
to live in affordable 
ownership housing 
must not have 
more than 
$200,000 in 

chase an affordable unit, in 

Other words, to qualify to live in 

the t ook Estate's affordable 

units. "You cannot have owned 
a house in Cohasset." he said. 

Rental rules 

Affordable rental housing 
guidelines are |iist as difficult to 
meet. The state says house- 
holds in the 60 to 80 percent 
median Income range (roughly 
$40,000 |o $50,000 per year) 
may only have $50,000 in 
assets in order to qualify, which 
is even more restrictive. 

Engler guessed the people 
who will move to the Cook 
Estate "will be the parents of 
those w ho h\ e here." adding the 
typical candidate will be some- 
one who has beet) able lo sell 
their home in Florida and have 
less than $200,000 in assets and 
is therefore able to come back 
10 Cohasset and quality for Ihe 

affordable units. While he said 
the units will be filled, they will 
not be occupied by Cohasset 
seniors, and the town should 
consider whether it agrees with 
the idea that "people who have 
roots in the community in 
which they grew up should 
have the opportunity Id stay." 

In addition to the project's not 
being able lo provide what the 
town had wanted. Engler said as 
the town drafts its third Request 
for Proposals, which indicates 
what the town would like to see 
built on the land, he would sug- 
gest it not restrict the develop- 
ment and require rental units, 
even though many in town have 
said there is a need for senior 
rental housing. In his experi- 
ence, rental housing and mar- 
ket-rate housing do not mix in 
the same development. "But 
that's just my opinion, that's not 
to say someone else won't come 
in and say. 'I can make it 
work ." he said. 

Engler said Ihe market will 
direct developers in their pro- 
posals and the town will have a 
decision to make once bids are 
received. However. "My back- 
ground says it's very difficult." 
10 make senior rental housing 
work in a development which 
also inc ludes market-rate units. 

Englei said many Other tow ns 
have a high resale value for 
homes and run into ihe same 
problems as Cohasset. He said 
thai leaves communities with 


Homing consultant Kolxrt lingler talks to seniois about their housing options during Tuesday 's 
(brum at the Paul Pratt Memorial l.ilmiir 

Ihe questions of who do you 
want to help, and what do you 
want lo "count." Cohassel is 
trying lo meet a It) percent 
affordable housing threshold set 
by ihe state. "Other towns say. 
w .'re going to help Ihe people 
in town'." he said, adding thai is 
a decision Cohassel musi make 
Selectman Rob Spoflord said 

at this point, the town has voted 
on the project and it has said it 
will be regulated by the 
SMROD bylaw. He said there- 
fore, to change the project 
would require another Town 
Meeting vote, and wiih the time 
constraints the board is current- 
ly working with, there is no 
time lo go backwards. 

The board of selectmen held a 
public hearing on the Cook 

Estate Thursday after the 

Manner went lo press lo gain 
feedback from residents for Ihe 
RFP. The board will discuss ihe

Community comes together 
to help the Doonan family 

Lost house in 
New Year's Day fire 

By Mary Ford 


A Cohasset family is out of a 
home, but not out of luck. 

The Doonans of 730 Jerusalem 
Road are surrounded by friends 
and a town that cares. 

No sooner had the last embers 
of a blaze the rendered their 
house uninhabitable Sunday 
evening been put out then a web 
site was launched seeking cash 
and non-monetary donations to 
help the family. 

•They are a well loved family 
whose friendships and contacts 
spread far and wide." the web 
slates. "Already there has been a 
tremendous outpouring of gen- 
erosity and support for them. 

Typical of our great town, 
many friends and strangers have 
contacted us wondering how 
they can help." 

Rob Doonan was home when a 
fire started in the dryer in the 
lower level of the split-level 

According the to lire depart- 
ment. Mr. Doonan burned his 
hands pulling clothes from the 
dryer. He refused medical treat- 
ment at the scene. Mr. Doonan 
Was the only person injured; the 
family 's dog Led perished in the 


"Typical of our 
great town, many 

strangers have 
contacted us 
wondering how 
they can help." 


Fire Chief Roger Lincoln said 
the homeowner went to a neigh- 
bor's house to report the fire: the 
rest of the family was at a hock- 
ey game. 

The call came into dispatch at 
5:14 p.m., Sunday. Lincoln said 
firefighters from Cohasset and 
Hull who were first on the scene 
brought the fire under control 

"It was knocked down in about 
half an hour." he said. "But we 
were there quite a while over- 
hauling and checking for exten- 
sion and didn't leave until 1 1 :30 

Lincoln explained that sheet 
rock has to be pulled down to 
check into the partitions to make 
sure that all fire is extinguished. 

He confirmed the fire was 
caused by lint in the dryer that 
was on the lower level in laundry 
room in the finished basement 
area. The fire caused damage to 

the laundry room, boiler room, 
and finished room; smoke and 
heat damage worked its way into 
partitions of the first floor. The 
fire was under control before it 
spread to the upper level, he said. 

Lincoln said it is his policy not 
to provide damage estimates, 
leaving that up to insurance 

Twelve Cohasset firefighters, 
including on-duty, off-duty and 
call firefighters, responded to the 
scene, along with six firefighters 
from Hull and three from 
Scituate. A Hingham engine cov- 
ered Cohasset fire headquarters. 

"The firefighters did their usual 
good work in bringing the fire 
under control so quickly," he 

According to the cohassetcafBt 
web site, the Doonans are living 
in a rental house in Hull that 
belongs to their neighbors and is 
fully equipped and furnished. "A 
couple of Cohasset houses are 
for rent and they will he Itxiking 
into those over the next few 
weeks," the web site slates. 

"This is a start and any and all 
ideas are welcome on how to 
make this as easy as possible for 
the Doonans...," the web site 
says. "The Doonans have been 
truly overwhelmed b\ all the 
support they have received. 
Thank you in advance for your

Pastor returning to his roots 


In fact when Culler arrived, 
there we,, only 10 children in 
the entire church and the church 
school had closed. Today we 
have the most children as a per- 
centage of the congregation than 
any other church in the diocese." 
he says with pride. 

However, he admits when lhe\ 
. f 'rsl arrived to having a little 
trouble making the transition 
from the inner city to quiet 

"I remember one night wanti- 
ng to go down the steps by the 
Independence Building (now 
Wild Plums) but there were no 
lights. ' he recalls. "Even though 
I knew it was safe. I couldn't 
force myself to go down - it 
took a while to change my 

Culler. who made the 
announcement that he is leaving 
at the Nov. s> church sen ice and 
later in a letter to parishioners, 
starts at St. Paul's Church in 
Chestnut Hill, a section of 
Philadelphia, in early February. 

"'It was very difficult." he 
recalls about the decision to 
leave Cohasset. This is a won- 
derful community and parish. I 
am not leaving without a lot of 
consideration and thought." 

He understands well that serv- 
ing as pastor is all about honor- 

ing relationships and there will 
be ample opportunities for 
parishioners and the community 
to say goodbye. At I p.m. today 
(Friday) an event is planned at 
the Council on Elder Affairs to 
honor Cutler; there will also be a 
tea from 2-5 p.m. in the Bartow 
Room at St Stephen's Saturday 
afternoon where people can 
share stories and remembrances. 
And from 7-9 p.m.. Jan. 14. St. 
Stephen's will host a reception 
at Walton Rodgers Hall thai will 
include a slide show of the 
church over the years. 

The assistant rector at St. 
Stephen's, the Rev. Beth 
Wheadey- Dyson, will serve as 
interim priest, while the search 
for a new rector gets under way 
A search committee has been 
formed as well as a group that is 
creating a profile of St. 
Stephen's and the community 
that can be used in the search 
process Cutler estimates it will 
be about 18 months before the 
parish is ready lo invite a new 
pastor to come and take charge 
of the ministry. 

Cutler is proud of much that 
St Stephen's has accomplished 
over the past 20 years hut at the 
top of the list is how the church 
has used its resources to heller 
die lives of others From provid- 
ing a $30,000 grant to help ihe 
Mary Martha Learning Center in 

Hingham, a residential educa- 
tional program for homeless 
families, primarily women with 
young children, gel started years 
ago — to its more recent efforts 
with Caribbean U- Turn, an orga- 
nization dedicated lo turning 
around the lives of al-risk youth 
of Caribbean descent — the 
church is involved well beyond 
the borders of Cohasset 

In fact, through the church's 
involvement with Caribbean-l 1 - 
Tum. St. Stephen's youth 
worked to raise money to pur- 
chase a system thai would treat 
lO.(XX) gallons of waler per day. 
enough to provide an entire 
community in Haiti With a reli- 
able source of pure drinking 

Cutler has found Cohasset to 
be a nurturing place lo raise a 
family "'It was everything we 
looked F01 "hen we left 
Philadelphia." he says. "I want 
10 thank everyone in the parish 
who helped me grow and thank 
the people of Cohasset." 

Cutler say s he hopes al the end 
of 10-12 years at his new 
church, he'll be able lo be as 
proud of Si Paul's as he is oi Si 

"It's going to be nice just 
being home." he says. "It seems 
like that's a nice place to end

Cohasset has been playing some

to play that style ol basketball. 

"They're quick and the play

Dorian leads wrestlers in Marshfield tourney 


larly impressed with the per- 
formance of senior co-captain 
Dave McKenna. who Finished 
sixth al 152. Sweeney called 
that weight class the toughest 
of the tournament, with six 
athletes who placed in the 
stale last season. Last year's 
Marshfield champion did not 
even finish in the lop six this 

"In a weight class like that, 
you make one mistake and 
you're done." Sweeney said. 
"I thought Dave wrestled 
well, but of course he wanted 
to win it. Four of those kids 
will be in this weekend's 
North Quincy tournament (in 
which Cohasset is participat- 
ing), so I know he'll be look- 
ing to thai as an opportunilv 
to bounce back 

Rounding oul Cohassel's 
top performers in Marshfield 
was junior Nick Cambi at 
189. Cambi made il to the 
quarterfinals before losing, 
and finished fifth after defeat 
ing Whitman-Hanson's Mike 
Sharp via a 4-2 decision in the 
fifth-place match. 

As a team, Sweeney contin- 
ues lo look lor others 10 step 

"We basically wrestled lo 
our potential (at Marshfield]." 
he said. "We are what we are. 
which is a 1 7th place team out 
of 28. Right now. we just need 
to continue to work on the 
basics and gel belter."

The best game ever? 


Thai seems to make some sense. 

Speaking of Young, if he does 
come out for the draft, how long 
will it lake the sports columnists 
in Houston to start pressuring the 
Texans to take him.' Two days? 
One day? David Carr is probably 

rolling his eyes already. 

With that said. Houston has to 
take Bush. You don't pass on the 
best college running back since 
Barry Sanders, 

USC receiver Dwayne Jarrctl is 
a stud. I'll be very surprised if he's 
not a lop five pick in the 2007 
NFL Draft 

Underrated performance of the 
night: the Texas offensive line. 
Save for when he tucked it and 
ran. was Young on the ground 
even once '.' And then the big fellas 
stormed the ESPN College 
Gameday poslgame sel and go! 
themselves on TV. A great night 
all around for them. 

How long before we start hear- 
ing the "For a head coach. Pete 
Carroll makes a great coordina- 
lor" jokes around here again'.'

much louder it is than an owl wing. The children learned during the

fly much more slowly and quietly than hawks which are diurnal, mean- 
intfihey sleep at night and fly fast when they hunt during the day.

visual artist to be awarded the 
Presidential Medal of Freedom, by 
President Kennedy in 1963, and 
the first artist again to be awarded 
the Congressional Gold Medal in 

Stop by the local diner. Hank's 
Place (U.S. Routes 1 and 100) 
early in the morning and you 
might spot Andy eating fried eggs 
and scrapple and drinking choco- 
late milk, accompanied by his 20-

Or you may spot him by the side 
of the road with his easel. Or in the 
road - as one story goes, one time 
he was standing in the middle of a 
road painting and rather than 
telling him to move, the police 
came by and simply put cones 
around him to block traffic. 

Wyeth is now 88, has painted for 
seven decades and shows no signs 
of letting up 

"He loves it. He really loves it. 
Every day he's out there painting 
Middle of a snow storm last year, 
I'm like. 'What are you doing'.'' I'm 
goin' painting. Vic,' " Victoria 
Wyeth said. 

She said the most frequent ques- 
tion she is asked about her famous 
grandfather is if he's still alive 

"People say he must be dead. He 
can't he living and be this famous." 
she said. 

Perhaps people will gel it when 
they see the major retrospective of 
Wycth's work. "Andrew Wyeth: 
Memory and Magic." organized 
h\ the Philadelphia Museum of 
Art and High Museum of Art in 
Atlanta. In Atlanta until Feb. 16, 
the show runs in Philadelphia 
March 29-July 16 (ticket informa- 
tion at 

Featured are more than 1(X) 
works in tempera, watercolor and 
drawings from Wyelh's personal 
Tile artist s most famous work is 
"Christina's World." on display at 
the Museum of Modem Art in 
New York. It depicts a handi- 
capped woman craw ling through a 
field to a fannhouse in Maine His 
most nolonous works were the 
nude paintings of a blond, pig- 
tailed Prussian woman. Hclga, 
who came to care for Wyeth's 
German neighbor here - as the 
story goes. Wyeth painted Helga 
over the course of many years 
without telling his wife, Betsey 
(because she had indicated before 
that when he painted nudes she 
didnt want to know). This led to 

Victoria, who occasionally leads 
tmirs and lectures on her grandfa- 
ther's work at the Brandywinc 
River Museum here and the 
Famsworth Art Museum and 
Wyeth Center in Rockland, Maine 
(she also will lead some tours dur- 
ing the Philadelphia show ) said 
she is sick of the Helga question 

"Helga could pose for BIX or 
seven hours." she said of Andrew s 
interest. "He kept the nudes secret 
for 15 years. The press really blew 
it out of proportion Helga is not 
that big a deal. It's just that he kept 
it a secret." she said. 

"They're just friends; people 
need to get beyond the gossip, " she 
said, adding her grandparents are 
happily married. 

To further illustrate the point, 
Victoria added she herself has 
posed nude for her grandfather, 
and it was not a big deal. 

"He paints his life, what he 
knows and who he knows, si* 
said. As for this small town. 
Victoria added, "this place is alive 
with inspiration." 

The Pennsylvania farmland, 
about 30 miles from downtown 
Philadelphia, first attracted 
Andrew's father. N.C. Wyeth. bom 
in Necdham. who moved to the 
Brandywinc Valley to study with 
famous illustrator Howard Pyle 
N.C. gained acclaim in his own 
right and bought a farmhouse here 
with his proceeds from illustrating 
Treasure Island." On the farm, he 
and his wife raised five kids, three 
of whom became painters - 

Andrew, the youngest, was bom in 
1917. N.C. died tragically when 
his car stalled on railroad tracks 
here in 1945. But the painting 
legacy continues with yet another 
generation - Andrew's son Jamie 
is also a renowned painter, his 
most famous work a posthumous 
portrait of President Kennedy. 

All three generations of Wyeth 
creations are on display at the 
Brandywinc and Famsworth 

Victoria, whose father. Nicholas, 
is an art dealer, is the sole grand- 
child of Wyeth and does not paint 
- she hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in 

Wyeth's talent appeared early , 
and he was only 1 5 when he found 
a lifelong muse. That's when he 
went out walking here and came 
upon the big white that 
today is known as Kuemer Farm, 
home of German immigrants Karl 
and Anna Kuemer and their five 
kids. Wyeth has painted the farm's 
animals, buildings, people (includ- 
ing caretaker Helga) and land- 
scapes, more than I .(XX) paintings 
in total, for more than 70 years. 

Today the farm is open to visi- 
tors, with tours departing from the 
Brandywinc Ri\er Museum late 
April through November. 

Also open for visitors is the near- 
by N.C. Wyeth Studio, a National 
Historic Landmark. You can lour 
the studio where there are original 
paintings, props and artifacts that 
inspired NC.'s illustrations (the 
coolest is a birch Penobscot Indian 
canoe), as well as the house where 
N.C. raised his creative kids. 

The riverfront Brandywinc 
and Famsworth up in Maine 
are the two major repositories of 
the work of all three generations of 
Wyeth artists In conjunction with 
the Philadelphia show, the 
Brandywine will display "Andrew 
Wyeth: Master Drawings from the 
Artist's Collection." March 
through July, with more than 40 
works from Wyeth's private col- 
lection. On a recent visit I spotted 
a tweed-clad Jamie buying hooks 
in the museum's gift shop, so keep 
your eyes peeled for Wyelhs here. 

Regular museum admission is 
$8 adults, S5 senior, and students; 
the farm and studio lours are an 
additinal $5. including shuttle bus 
serv ice to the sites. 

Also jumping on the Wyeth 
bandwagon, the Wilmington, Del.- 
based Delaware Art Museum 
( only about 40 
minutes from Philadelphia, will 
host a Wyeth exhibition, 
"Something Waits Beneath It" 
(March 29-July 16), with 32 early 
and seldom seen works by the 
young Andrew Wyeth. including 
watercolors and tempera paintings 
of coastal Maine and eastern 
Pennsylvania created from 1939 
through the 1960s. 

If you go_ 

STAYING THERE: To appreci- 
ate Wyeth. a country stay is a must, 
and an excellent choice is The Inn 
at Whitewing Farm, a lovely, his- 
toric farmhouse inn complete with 
cows, horses and swans and an 
afternoon lea for guests that rivals 
the Ritz-Carllon in Boston. It's not 
far from Chadds Ford in tiny

Tide gate debate is slated for future agenda 

Chairman of the harbor health 
committee Karen Quigley sent a 
letter to the board of selectmen 
asking it to consider petitioning 
the Army Corps of P.nginecrs to 
adjust the winter and summer set 
lings of the self-regulating tide 
gates, to increase the amount ol 

♦altwater flow into James 


' Qwgley stated the pa-sent sel- 
lings do not allow sufficient salt- 
water llow to preserve the saltwa

jng growth of phragmites in the 
SneadoWi 'The habitat for marine 
plants and animals has been

However. Quigley bad also CDfl 
tacted (ireenhush liaison Tom 
timber about ilic matter, and he 
leels there is not enough evidence 
to support her claims In a Idler

In light ol the conllicting opin- 
ions, selectman Gary Variderweil 
said the harbor health committee 
should COme in to give an update- 
to Ihe hoard anyhow, and it can 

explain the issues it has with the 
tide gates at that time. He said it 
had been his understanding allow - 
ing even three more inches ol 
water in through the gales could 
pose problems for homeow ners in 
the surrounding area. Town 
Manager Bill Gnffin said he 
would put the matter on an 
upcoming meeting agenda.

Griffin, schools are way 
off on fiscal 2007 figures 

1 32 Front Street • Scituate Harbor 


the limits of 2-1/2. and selectmen 
would be rcspoasible for decid- 
ing whether thai practice 
becomes policy. 

Griffin"s budgeting style takes 
away the need to amend a budget 
if an override fails. He said in the 
past, the town has passed budgets 
at Town Meeting which include 
override figures and if they fail, 
the budget must be amended at a 
second Town Meeting. He said 
by passing a balanced budget 
Gist, it can always be amended to 
increase the spending, which 
often gives voters a better under- 
standing of what they will pay 
lor with that increase. 

Griffin said he has not yet for- 
mally met with members of the 
school department to discuss its 
budget and he has not received 
any definitive numbers to work 
w ith. He said he understands the 
school department is in the 
process of working through its 
budget exercises and he should 
have its numbers six>n. 

"I'm working in a very detailed 
way with the (own budget and in 
very round numbers with the 
school department" at this point. 
Gritlin said. 

The most recent figure the 
school department provided t" 
Griffin is a recommendation of 
$13,961,991. That figure would 
be an increase of $1,617,60°, or 
13.1 percent from the school 
department's budget in fiscal 
2006. The increase anticipates 
Offsets in the amount of SKI. 000 
from athletics. SI 50.0X9 in cir- 
cuit breaker money, and S86.980 
in Mf-.TCO funds. The number 
plugged in for cost of living 
salary increases Bar teachers is 
currently $238,655, but that fig- 
ure could change because the 
teachers' contract is still in nego 

However. Gnffin said his rec- 
ommended budget for the school 
department will come up "very 
short" trom what Supl. of 
Schools Denisc Walsh is recom- 
mending. Griffin is proposing a 
school department budget of 
SI 2.7 1 4,7 1 4, which is an 
increase of S370.332 from last 
year, or 3 percent. Griffin said 
there just isn't room in the bud- 
gel for a s 1 .6 million Increase for 

the school department, especially 
w hen many of the departments in 
town have total budgets equal to 
that proposed increase. Griffin is 
recommending a budget of 
SI. 27 1. 899 for the Department 
ol Public Works: SI. 764 .982 lor 
the police department; and 
SI, 842.864 lor the lire depart- 

Griffin explained department 
heads drafted a suggested budget 
for him to work with, which 
included everything they felt 
thev needed in order to be able to 
adequately run their department. 
Prom those suggested budgets, 
he made roughly S9(X).000 in 
cuts to ensure he could bring a 
balanced budget to the selectmen 

Town Manager Bill 

Griffin is 
proposing a school 
budget of 
which is an 
increase of 
$370,332 from 
last year, or 3 

and advisory committee. 

"There are no new positions 
being supported at this point in 
my budget," he said, but there is 
a three-hour increase in the plan- 
ning board office stall. 

While the school department 
will soon formally provide its 
numbers for Griffin, as things 
currently stand, "even hall Of 
their request we can't measure 
up to." he said. 

What the school 
department says 

On Dec. 15. Supt. Denise 
Walsh presented her recom- 
mended budget lor fiscal 2007. 
and as ol Thursday. Jan. 5. the 
numbers were still the same. 

"We are aware we are MM the 
only department in town and 
these are difficult financial 
times." she said, but added, "we 
can no longer absorb the effects 
of deterring programs and pro- 
jects without impact." 

Walsh said from year to year, 
the school department needs a 7 
percent increase ai minimum just 
to "maintain the status quo." She 
said roughly 80 percent of the 
schtxil department's budget is 
spent on teacher salaries, and 
staying within the 2-1/2 percent 
increase realm, is "impossible 
without layoffs." 

School committee member 
Adncnne MacC'arthy said the 
slate is no longer providing the 
aid it said it would, and in her 
opinion, no school can ever man- 
age on 2-1/2 percent increases 
from year to year. "I don't think 
there is a school system in the 
state that can do it." she said. 

Member Pam Wilson said she 
too was disappointed with the 
amount of money the schools 
receive. She said at the town 
level, the funds the schools have 
been allocated Irom the town 
operating budget have been "a 
very small piece of a very big 
pie." year after year. 

The school department invited 
principals Janet Shcchan from 
the Osgood School and Keith 
Gauley from IXer Hill School to 
present their proposed budgets 
for fiscal 2(X)7 Jan 5. Both pro 

posals coincide with the school 
department's proposed 13 per- 
cent budget increase. 

At the Osgood School 
Sheehan's budget reflected an 
increase of 18.5 percent, or 
$381,791. from fiscal 2006. 
Sheehan explained $ 169. 1 28 has 
been added in new personnel, 
including two new kindergarten 
teachers, one physical educa- 
tion/health teacher, one grade- 
two teacher, and one evening 

Enrollment is expected to 
increase by between 40 and 50 
students at the kindergarten level 
this fall, and to keep kindergarten 
class sizes at roughly 17 per 
class, two teachers are warrant- 
ed. While one of the positions 
will be for a new full-day kinder- 
garten teacher and the salary will 
therefore be paid by tuitions of 
students attending the class, a 
new hall-day teacher will require 
the school department pay a 
salary. '' 

Sheehan said the phy sical edu- 
cation teacher will split his or bet 
time between Osgood and Deci 
Hill, and having that extra person 
on hand will allow for moic 
health education as well as pbvs 
ical education classes two times 
per week 

Sheehan said adding a new 
custodian will not only help keep 
the buildings clean, it w ill ensure 
someone is at the building al all 
limes, and there is someone 
available to lock things up at 
night and make sure the building 
is secure. 

"We're really restoring posi- 
tions we once had." Sheehan 

Al Deer Hill. Gauley 's budget 
reflected an increase of S 1 7 1 .666 
or 8 percent over fiscal 2006. He 
said it was much easier for him to 
come in with a lower increase 
because he does not have ihe 
enrollment increase next year 
that the Osg<H>d School will. "I 
just happen to be- outside the bub- 
ble." he said, as Osgood and the 
middle ncIhmiI will both experi- 
ence significant increases in 
enrollment next year 

Gauley's budget includes 
increasing the physical education 
and health teaching position 
which will be a shared cost 
between IX-er Hill and Osgcxid. 
as well as one evening custodian, 
for a proposed new personnel 
increase ol S48.579. 

The i oupttu school budget 
presentation is available on the 
school district's Web site al the 
school Committee » ill meet again 
Jan. 19, ami middle-high school 
principal Joei Amolini is sched- 
uled to give his budget ptesema

been made to the school comwu

ftgun's lor the tosut. Then' will

Yacht club defends actions 


The club immediately sought 
legal counsel and an accounting 
firm to conduct a forensic audit 
Of the books. 

According to sources, club 
officials looked at either suing 
Crocker lor damages or involv- 
ing the police, but both options 
would have taken months, even 
years, and the club would have 
no guarantee it would get its 
money back. So they decided to 
seek a settlement with Crocker in 
which the club says it has 
already received S200.000 and 
has a lien on Crocker's condo- 
minium in Jupiter, Fla. to get the 
balance — roughly $260,000 
more that includes interest on the 
stolen lunds and Ihe cost of the 
investigation. Club officials said 
the investigation was limited to 
Ihe past seven years because 
that's as long as the bank retains 

Al the meeting, sources said 
club officials made it clear, once 
the theft of funds was discov- 
ered, there was no attempt at a 
cover up or to "sweep this under 
the rug," and felt it was impor- 
tant that the membership be fully 
informed. In fact the club was 
willing to forgo any agreement 
that precluded it from telling Ihe 

"Once the word got out no 
one thought members would 
keep it quiet." one source at 

the meeting said. 

After the meeting others said 
while they were frustrated the 
club did not immediately go to 
the police, they could see "both 
sides." "No oik was prepared to 
deal with a situation like this," a 
source said. 

Murray sent a letter dated Dec, 
16 to the entire membership, 
some 245 families. The Mariner 
subsequently received a total ol 
five copies, all sent anonymous- 


At the meeting it was also 
made very clear that while Ihe 
agreement states the club would 
not initiate or pursue criminal 
proceedings, there is nothing 
prohibiting the club from coop 
crating with the police. 

In fact Cohassel police are 
investigating the yacht club thclt 
in conjunction with Ihe Norfolk 
County District Attorney's 
Office and have stated the yacht 
club leadership has agreed to 
cooperate fully. IXpending on 
ihe outcome of that investiga- 
tion. Crocker could lace larceny 
charges in Norfolk County. 

Hingham police, in conjunc- 
tion with the Plymouth County 
DA's office, are also investigat- 
ing Crocker's alleged embezzle 
ment of at least $37,000 in funds 
from the Rotary 

It is not clear what Crocker did 
with Ihe money he admitted to 
stealing from Ihe yacht club and 

Rotary, although there has been 
plenty of speculation but nothuig 
that can be substantiated for the 
record al this time. 

One member at the yacht clut> 
meeting spoke lor others wheli 
he said "the club put money 
ahead ol principle" and that tlx 
club should have gone directly 
to Ihe police, according to a 
source. However, it was made- 
clear the club was try ing to act in 
the best interest of its member 
ship in try ing 10 gel the money 
back When the theft came to 
light, there was some concern 
expressed by club officials about 
being able to handle Ihe operaj- 
ing expenses of the club oflCe 
checks were bouncing and the 
thclt was discovered. 

Al Ihe meeting, yacht ehib 
officials said the club has moved 
forward with more modem, effi 
cienl bookkeeping and has hired 
a CPA as its accountant. 
Members were assured that the 
club has instituted an oversight 
system "with many eyes" that 
will ensure its treasury is secure. 

According to Ihe stale licen- 
sure bureau. Crocker is not a 
CPA and w as not licensed to dk) 
audits. A spokesman for the 
agency says (here is no licensing 
requirement in Massachusetts to 
provide basic accounting ser- 
vices as long as Ihe person does 
not conduct audits.

MassHighway gives green 
light for Greenbush signal 

The meeting proved lo be very 
beneficial as a huge misunder- 
standing has been cleared up. 
The town has a mitigation agree- 
ment with the MBTA that stales 
it "will install a light al the station 
if MassHighway gives its 
approval. The MBTA has said 
repeatedly that MassHighway 
Tecls a light is not warranted at 
(he station, and therefore the 
MBTA changed its plans lor the 
. .station's intersection. Currently, 
plans for the station only include 
installing the conduits for traffic 

MBTA engineer Jim Bqg said 
the MBTA is working within a 
very tight timeframe to build the 
Clreenbush line. He said it is slat- 
ed lo he up and running by next 
year. However, the mitigation 
agreement still says his organiza- 
tion plans to provide traffic lights 
for the station, if MassHighway 
gives iis approval. ling said some 
money was pulled out of the train 
budget when MassHighway • :id 
it did not support the light. 

But MassHighway s District S 
Director Bernard "Skip"' 
McCourt said his organization 
does not have a problem with 
installing a light, especially in 
light of the recent addition of .1 
walking and bike path in con- 
junction with the rail line lhal 
will he localcd across ihe street 
from the station. 

Eng said Friday was the first 
time he had heard any 
MassHighway representatives 
speak in favor oi a light al the Sta- 
tion, and if that was truly the 
opinion ol the organization, he 
would go back lo his designers to 
consider a redesign <>l Ihe unci - 
section that would include plans 
for traffic signals. He said there 
would he an additional cost for 
Ihe redesign as well as a cost to 
run the wires and install the 
equipment necessary lo have 
functioning lights. || would also 
cost Ihe organization Valuable 

Fellow MBTA engineer Eric 
I Icming saiJ it would he a "com- 
plete change of the intersection 
lo accommodate a light." 

But according lo 

MassHighway, the MBTA has 
had close to a lull year lo plan lot 
the addition of a light al the sta- 
tion. McCourt presented ihe 
meeting with a copy ol a Idler he 
wrote, dated April 28. 2005, 
which was addressed to Kceer 
Wilson of Cashman BUMtf 
Bealty. 'Ik company construct- 
ing the Greenbush line. In ihe 
letter he stales, "With the antici- 
pated heavy use ol the 
Department of Conservation and 
Recreation bike path. 
MassHighway is now recom- 
mending ihe installation o| traffic 

control signals ai the intersection 

of Rte. 3A and ihe Cohasset sia 
lion drive." 
The revelation caused a bil ol a 

stir among those in attendance 

and copies of Ihe letter were 
made quickly. Tom Carroll, 
^immunity outreach liaison for 
CBB. said he would check with 
Roger Wilson, whom the Idler 
was addressed 10, to find out why 
the inlormalion had not been

asked those 111 attendance il any- 
one had an\ idea as lo ho\y Ihe 
municipality should proceed 
now that McCourt's letter has 
rod the conditions ol ihe mitiga- 
tlon agreement and Cohasset 
should be on the path lo gelling 
Ihe traffic light II was promised. 

(irccnhtish liaison Tom timber 
said even Ihough ihe mitigation 
agieemcni conditions have been 
met. in his inlonnal conversa- 
tions with MBTA rcpiescnla- 
tivcs. be has been told H does not 
have Ihe money available lo

the mallei now goes forward and 
Ihe MBTA comes back la s.iy it 
cannot include ihe lights j| the

Ihe loyyn will likely entei into the 
dispute resolution process. 

King Street 

Unlike the neighboring towns 
ol Hinghaiti and Scilinue, 
Cohassct's portion ol Rle. 3A is

Some would argue the portion ol 
3A From Ihe Slop and Shop lo

is the moSl congested portion ol 
the road, and ihe most danger- 

Many motorists m iown say 
they will Dot lake a lelt turn lo 
travel soulh on 3 A out o| eilhei 
Sohiei Sued or King Sired 
While Sofner Slavl has a blink

lective and ihcv would rather 
turn right and make a I mm to 
head south rather than risk being 
hil by oncoming iraffic. There is 
no signalization at King Street ai 
all. and pro|ccis in the pipeline 
will affect both intersections. 

The Avalon -IIIB housing pro 
ject, which would have 21X1 
units, is in the works, and its 
entrance would be located just 
north ol where Sohier Sired 
intersects 'A. across from where 

<ii«Ki Sport is current!) located. 

In addition, the town is on Ihe 

cusp ot taking up its lirsi com- 
mercial subdivision, dubbed 

Jim Bug of the MBTA noes over tome documents dining the traf- 
fic summit that dealt with the need for </ li.uht at the ( hvenhush 
wain station 

Scituate Hill, and lis entrance 
will he localcd almost directly 
across the -lied Irom the inter- 
section ol King Street and 3A. 
When ihe Greenbush line is up 
and running, 11 is estimated traf- 
fic Irom Hull will begin traveling 
up l-oresi Avenue U) King Sired 
to access the Cohasset station, 
and lhal will add even more traf- 
fic lo King Slreel 

Developers for ihe proposed 
Scituate Hill subdivision have 
said they are willing to work yvith 
ihe loyyn lo install a hghi at the 
King Sired intersection. 
1'ropcny owner Kob Schwandl 
hired Rizzo Associates 10 con- 
duct traffic studies of ihe area 
and made lhal information avail- 
able .11 the meeting. 

Rick Bryanl ol R1//0 
Associates said he has done the 
trallic work lor Slop and Shop, 
the new Dunkin' Donuts on 3A. 
some ol ihe work loi Ihe pro- 
posed Avalon development, and 
he has done consulting work lor 
the MBTA as well. "We have 
accumulated a lot ol information 
on this piece ol 'A." he said. In 
his opinion. Bryanl said King 
Street Will have approximately 
5.5(11) inps per day once Scituate 
Hill is lully built. "The volume 
ol trallic justifies the installation 
ol a signal. The existing volume 
ol Hal fie on King Sired warrants 
it," he said 

Police Chiel James Husscv and 
Rte Chiel Roger Lincoln were 
present loi the meeting lo give 
their thoughts on 3A traffic. 
Husm'v said Rle. 3A has more 
accidents than any other place in 
lown Particularly the mlersev- 
tions al Bccchwood Slreel — 
which does have a lighl King 
Slreel and Sohier Street. "Il does 
eat up our resources." he said. 

Speed limit 

In addition. Hussey said there 
an- main dilferenl postings lor 
speed limits over Ihe length ol 
Cohassei's sireteh of 3A and 
some indicate 50 miles per hour 
where moionsis really should noi 
be going thai last due to the shop- 
ping plazas. He suggested (he 
signage be changed lo refleci 
appiopnale speed limits lor Ihe 
use- ol ihe road. 

Hussey ,aid Ihe traffic at lower 
King Sta-el is horrible dunng the 
morning commute due to the 
lack ol a traffic light, and he said 
on many occasions, he has been 
traveling lo ihe department in the 
morning and will gel out of his 
car (o direct traffic to help clear 
the tie-ups. He said currently, on 
a typical day without the train 
and without a traffic lighl, it can 
he very difficult for people lo gel 
where they are going. 

Chief Lincoln said in 2(XU(the 
hues) year lor which he had al) 
Ihe statistics compiled) there 
were 78 car accidents on Kte. 3A 
or siavts which traveling on 3A 
is a-quirvd lo ivspond to Ihe inci- 
dent He said lhal means 57 per- 
cent ol Ihe total accidents in 2(XM 
were on 3A or abuldng streets 
There were 261 other emergen 
cics which look place 111 Ihe 3A 
area, w hich is a total of 21 per- 
cent ol the total emergency runs 
He viid iraffic does gel hacked 
up on 'A. and "It does affect our 
abilily lo respond lo calls." 

Action items 
from traffic 

• Bring forward new sig 
nage on Rte. 3A in lighl of 
Chief Hussey's concern 
that speed limits are posicd 
which arc loo last in light 
of Ihe surrounding shop- 
ping centers. In addition, 
both the police and lire 
chief will report regularly 
on the accidents and emer- 
gency runs related 10 Rte. 

• Paper How and dead 
lines will be more closely 
monitored, as the letter 
from MassHighway which 
indicated il was in favor of 
a traffic lighl was some- 
how lost in Ihe shuffle. 
Talk of signalization al the 
Greenbush station will 
continue with 
MassHighway and ihe 

• Signalizalion lor King 
Street in relation specifi- 
cally to the proposed 
Scituale Hill commercial 
subdivision will be dis- 
cussed on an ongoing 

• The town should work 
with Hingham and 
Scituate on a ma-ster traffic 
plan lor the stretch of the 
3A corridor that runs 
through the ihree towns.

CHS grad likes being a space shot 

Jenkins talks to classes 

about engineering field 

By Samantha Brown 


TVhen silting down lo watch 
their favorite television program 
vK a satellite television network, 
students in four Cohasset High 
Sfchool classes will now have a 

studying abroad in Switzerland. 
-She was valedictorian of the 
Class of 1995. a Massachusetts 
AP scholar, and a National 
Science Scholar winner. 

Jenkins holds a bachelor's 
degree in mechanical engineer- 

Getter understanding of how the iȣ from Northwestern 
■gnats travel lo their home from University in Chicago and her 

masters of science degree and 
engineer's degree in aeronautics 
and astronautics from Stanford 
University in California. Her 
graduate research was conducted 
at the NASA Ames Research 
Center in California's Silicon 

Jenkins cased the student'- in 
David Ames' class into (heir 
engineering conversation by 
playing a game lo gel Ihem 
engaged. She asked students l" 
name anything ihey could ihmk 
oJ that engineers would develop, 
and in relum, ihey were reward- 
ed wilh a piece of candy. 
Jenkins explained ihe different 
roles ot Ihe live major types ol 
engineers, and which kind ol 
engineers would work on Ihe dil- 
lerenl ideas ihey came up wilh 

Aerospace engineers, which 
Jenkins is by prolession. work 
on projects like satellites, sleallh 
lighters lor the military, missiles, 
and space shulllcs. Chemical 
engineers work Oft things like 
food Hems, and Jenkins 
explained ihey "make il healthi- 
er, tasie heller, and lasi longer.'" 
They also work on petroleum 
products, making gasoline safer 
for cars as well as the environ- 

Civil engineers build things 
like bridges, and Jenkins used 
Ihe Sydney Harbor Bridge in 
Australia and the Golden Gate 
Bridge in San Francisco as two 
examples ol outstanding civil 
engineering. She also talked 
about electrical engineers and 
Ihe new technology that is 
always being improved lor 
appliances such as televisions 

and refrigerators, as well as elec- 

B hanks lo engineer Jessica 
Jenkins — a graduate of ihe 
Cohasset High School CI ass of 
1595 who relumed to the school 
Dec. 21 lo give siudenls an 
inside peak into her profession 
— students are now more aware 
of the many ways engineer! 
impact our everyday lives. 
Jenkins provided them wilh a 
crash course in ihe mans differ- 
ent kinds of engineering careen 
they could pursue 

"There are lots of opportunities 
for engineers. There are a lot 
now. and there w ill be ev en more 
when you graduate from col- 
lege." said Jenkins, who is an 
aerospace engineer for 
Lockheed Martin in California. 
Her company works on many 
dillerenl engineering projects, 
including satellites and space 
stations for NASA, and lop- 
secrcl endeavors lor ihe govern- 

Jenkins volunleers at schools 
whenever she can to help pro- 
mote engineering through ihe 
"Discover E " (E is lor engi 
neering) program. Engineers 
who participate in the program 
help grade school and high 

school students relate engineer 

ing 10 the world around them. 
Jenkins typically visits schools 
in California where she currently 
lives, but wanted to relurn lo her 
alma maler while she was home 
for the holidays visiting her par- 
ents Leonora and 1-cland Jenkins 
of Jerusalem Road.

The students asked Jenkins 
what she is currently working 
on. but thai information is lop- 
secrel. "I work on a classified 
project," she replied, but gave 
them a very small hint when she 
said, ' it's going lo help keep you 
all sater Especially if you join 
the military ." 

But as lor her day-to-day rou- 
tine. Jenkins said she works with 
a learn ol roughly 1 20 engineers. 

There are a hunch "I little learns 
and we all make up a big one," 
-he said With thai being said, il 
made sense that Jenkins would 
have the students break up into 
-mall learns lo carry out an engi- 
neering leal: which group could 
come up with Ihe hest means o| 
moving a piece ol candy across

Students were given a variety 
ol materials lo work with includ- 
ing scissors, lape. two paper- 
clips, three siraws. a piece of 
Jolh. some cardboard, about 30 
leet ot string, and a rubber band 
In ihe end there were two dis- 
tinct designs used by the stu- 
dents Some groups used the 
rubber hand to pull back and 
launch the candy, while others 
lound a way lo slide Ihe candy 
on a Mring acros- ihe room 

Al the end ol Ihe class. Jenkins 
lelt Ihe students with some engi-

By JIMIan Fennlmore 


Pet lovers every where are working harder than 
ever to fetch the funds for the Scituate Animal 

Friends of the Seituale Animal Shelter are out of 
the doghouse and getting closer to its goal of rais- 
ing 5834.000 by the end of February to relocate its 
building to a four-acre spot on the Route 3A Farm. 

Right DOW the group has met its mark of raising 
more than $300,000 

"We are on a roll. Once we hit 
the milestone of half of a 
million dollars there's no 
stopping us now." 

Nancy Testa. Kriends of the 
Scituate Sheta 

"We are on a roll." said Nancy Testa. Friends ol 
the Scituate Shelter chairperson. "Once we hit the 
milestone Ol half ol a million dollars there's no 
stopping us now." 

And the generosity continues for the shelter as 
donation> continue to flow in. despite the road- 
blocks the shelter has laced along the way. 

In November, members of the Sciluate Animal 
Shelter and the Driftwa) Animal Hospital found

portion of her annual salaiy to help wise funds 
tor the Seiluale Animal Shelter. 

that their fundraisine containers were stolen nghl 
oil the counters of their businesses, 

For Carol Ann Green, a loan officer at Pride 
Mortgage in Hingham. this i- What sparked her to 
pitch in. 

"I was flahbeigasied." she said ahoui hearing ol 
the unlortunate loss. "These people have been 
winking so hard to raise Ihi^ money 

So Green decided to kick in a little of her own. 
promising 5 percent of her 2006 sal.iry to the sup- 

port (he shelter during their lime of need. 

Since Green's income runs on a commission 
basis, her donations will vary each month. If need- 
ed, she will make a commitment lo donate some of 
the money upfront to make ends meet. 

A pet owner herself — she has an 8-ycar-old bull- 
dog named Nicki — Green said she wanted to do 
what she could to give the shelter's animals a bet- 
ter home. 

"It's a terrible thing lo think someone would steal 
money from homeless animals and the people that 
work so hard to care lor them." she said. "But now 
we must look lorward and do whatever we can lo 
ensure that the shelter is able to achieve its goals 
and maintain the level of integrity and compassion 
that it has provided our communities for the past 1 4 

Friends ol the Sciluate Animal Shelter have been 
collecting money for the past seven years or so to 
support the shelter's general fund ol the no-kill 

shelter, used to pay for the everyday necessities 
such as food for all the pets and litter for the cats 
The shelter serves not only Scituate but also the 
communities of Cohasset. Hingham. Norwell and 

Friends of the shelter got voter approval in 
October, allowing the town to sell the existing shel- 
ter building on the Driftway to help fund the new 
facility which along with the land purchase will 
come at a cost of SI .6 million. 

The current shelter will be sold under a minimum' 
sealed bid for $375,000. 

The new 2.5(X)-squarc-foot facility proposed is 
needed to accommodate the growing number of 
stray, homeless, injured, and surrendered compan- 
ion animals, according to the shelter's Web site.

No winners here 

li would be so nice to lurn hack the clock when a handshake 
was all lhai was required lo guarantee a loan because a person's 
good name and character were paramount. 

But. sadly, we live in a different world — one that the venera- 
ble Cohasset Yacht Club — a place that relied on "past prac- 
tices" lor want of a better term when it came to its finances, 
lias been IrtCtaU) thrust into 

How can Upwards of S427.(XX) go missing and not be 
•noticed" for years? There had to be some signals. Were club 
i ifficcrs concerned about being impolite and therefore never 
asked about certain irregularities'.' Or were they just simply 
naive in assuming one of their own would have their best inter- 
csis at bean? 

Vccordiflg lo sources at the yacht club. Davenport Crocker 
Si i nun from an old. respected Cohasset family whose father 
- a noted sailor - signed his son up at birth, was a trusted 
friend. It appears that was all that was needed for the club to 
allow Crocker to manage its money with virtually no oversight. 

Ii .ill sounds SO quaint and "Andy of Mayberry-ish." But the 
reality is. no one in a financial position for any company or 
non-profit organization should serve without a sound system in 
place to prevent exactly this type of criminal activity from 
.vcurrtng. Clearly the commodores and leaders at the club 
needed to step up to the plate years ago to protect the member- 
ship that paid its dues in good faith. 

The \achl club has come to realize this the hard way, Not only 
has it experienced the theft from its treasury, but once the mat- 
tet became public knowledge, it has had to endure considerable 
embarrassment and be accountable to hundreds of members 
who pay hefty annual fees and mooring charges. 

Going lorward. the club has now put in place "modem" 
accounting practices to ensure this cannot happen again. 

Once the magnitude of the theft came to light, the CYC. in the 
interest ol ser\ing its membership and getting its money back, 
did not go to the police, although we understand the club is 
cooperating w ith the investigation. 

Now that police are investigating, the issue is unlikely to go 
away. Mr. Crocker, who is alleged to have also stolen from the 
riingharn-HuU Rotaiy Club, could face larceny charges in two 

This whole incident serves as an unfortunate reminder to all 
of us that times are different — we have to keep tabs on those 
we entrust to work for us. 

Cook Estate RFP #3 
available Wednesday 

The board of selectmen made its final changes to the third 
Cook Estate Request lor Proposals Tuesday. The RFP outlines 
the specifications the town would like to see in any projects 
build on the Cook land off Sohier Street. 

Among the changes in this latest draft is the decision by the 
board to put more weight on moderately priced units, which 
will fulfill a need for Cohasset seniors. It recently came to the 
board's attention that most Cohasset seniors would not qualify 
lor affordable housing units — rental or ownership — due to 
the fact that selling a home in Cohasset w ill leave seniors with 
loo much money to pass the asset test. 

Town Manager Bill Griffin said the required notice of the 
Cook RFP will appear in the Central Register, published week- 
ly by the secretary of state, on Wednesday, Jan. 18. Proposals 
lor the project will be due by Friday. Feb. 17.

Pedestrian rules are ignored 

TOTtS Editor: 

It is ama/ing how many walkers and jog- 
gers continue to walk or jog with their backs 
to the traffic, blissfully unaware of risks from 
careless drivers, driven on their cell phones, 
drivers blinded by the sun. drivers with poor 
eyesight, etc. 

Commonsense. and the recommendations 
of police and other authorities who deal 
with pedestrian injuries, tells us to walk or 
jog facing the traffic. Not only is the pedes- 
trian's face more visible than his or her back, 
but the pedestrian has more chance to see the 
errant vehicle and move aside in time. 

The ultra in foolishness is walking or jog- 
ging in the evening, back to traffic, wearing 
dark clothes. The ultra ultra is doing it on a 

street beside a serviceable sidewalk. 

It's not just the business of the pedestrian; 
we all bear the cost of higher insurance pre- 
miums and indirect taxes that result from 
needless in jury. A motorist who. in a moment 
of inattention or blinded by the sun or 
oncoming lights, injures a pedestrian, is a 
victim too. 

Well that's my nag for the week.

Community Blood Drive scheduled for Feb. 1 

Since 1970. January has been recognized 
as National Blood Donor Month. At this 
time, donations ol all blood types are 
needed to meet the needs of patients in 
local hospitals as well as those throughout 
New England. To help ensure an adequate 
blood supply, the American Red Cross 
once again joins with the Town of 
Cohasset in the hope that residents will 
lake some lime out of their busy lives to 
give the Gift of Life. This year's Red 
Cross Blood Drive will be held 
Wednesday. Feb. I, at St. Anthony's 
Parish Hall, 10 Summer St.. Cohasset, 
from 1 to 7 p.m. Childcare will be avail- 
able from 3 lo 5 p.m. All donors will 
receive an entry into the weekly "Warm 
Your Heart" drawing for $200 toward 

monthly heating costs. 

According to Joanne Newton, New 
England Region CEO. the need for blood 
is constant, and volunteer blood donors 
contribute to nearly all the blood used for 
patient care in the U. S. 'If all who are eli- 
gible to donate would do so on a regular 
basis, three to four limes per year, blood 
needs could be met and shortages could 
become a thing of the past," Newton 

Everyone, whether it is realized or not. 
depends on blood. Every two seconds, 
someone needs blood. Each day, patients 
across the country receive approximately 
38,000 units of this lifesaving resource. 
This year, as many as five million patients 
will require blood transfusions as accident 

victims, people undergoing surgery, and 
patients receiving treatment for leukemia, 
cancer and other diseases. 

To give blood, potential donors must be 
at least 17 years of age. weigh at least 1 10 
pounds and be in good health. Most med- 
ications and medical conditions do not 
prohibit a person from being a blood 
donor. Donors can give blood safely every 
eight weeks. To make an appointment to 
donate call Kevin or Ann O'Connor at 
781-383-1290, or the Red Cross Blood 
Services at 1-800-448-3543. or visit For information on the 
blood donation process and current eligi- 
bility guidelines visit www.newengland-,

Sohier, Pleasant streets to close soon 


Tom Gruber & Mark Bki-ss vs 

We've menlioned before and 
we'll say it again — the only thing 
it is constant on the Grecnhush 
>ject is the fact that it change! 

y. Crossings that are going 
close don't close and other cross- 
s are now higher priority and 
will close. Listen carefully and 
we'll do our best to tell you the lat- 
eii plans. 

irst, King Street may he able to 
n at the end of this week or 
ime next week, depending on 
weather. The weather has been 
mild, that the project has been 
aqle to gel much more work done 
irton Ihey had anticipated. Even all 
of the paving is expected to he 
completed. We have included a 
pljoto of the King Streel crossing 
waiting for the final paving 10 be 

Nantasket Beach in Hull. Clearly, 
having Hull Street closed at the 
same time as Sohier will further 
stress the Route 3A-King Street 
intersection. Now. we hear lhal the 
underground construction is not as 
complicated as they originally 
thought, so this closure can be 
delayed. We do guess that Hull

mother, here the King Streel crossing is waiting for the final pas ing to be 


King StRM is reopened. 
MBTA will close Sohier Street 
shortly thereafter. Please be 
6ry careful with this closure, 
fcere about 70 homes whose onl) 
cess from Sohier will be through 
ute 3A. Similarly, school buses 
ing Osgood and Deer Hill 
hools as well as parents and 
teachers will need lo use Route 3A. 
V^e have asked the MBTA t > have 
d»ty police at the Sohier/Route 3A 
earner to assist traffic at this very 
rrjessy intersection. Police ( hid 
Jan Hussey will be in charge ol ihe 
traffic detail deployment and an)

We suspect lhal this traffic assis-

The MBTA notified us on Jan. 10 
lhal it is iheir intention to close

Pleasanl streets will be closed at

Just when you thought we had the smoking 
demon on the run. along comes the hookah. 

(I know what you're thinking but it's spelled 

The hookah is a Middle Eastern water pipe 
thmugh which smokers inhale fruii-flavored 
tobacco and it's catching on with the college 
crowd in such unlikely places as Ames. Iowa, 
and Salisbury. N'.C. where cigar., cigarettes 
and a chaw ol Red Man are frowned upon 

Brennan Appel, director of wnicn 
sells hookahs, says the pipe 
is offered in about 1,000 
cafes and restaurants 
across the nation... 

This al a tune when 39 per cent ol our popula- 
tion lives in areas that have more than 2JXX1 laws 
that limit smoking in rant manner and IIS local- 
ities have banned smoking outright in all restau- 
rants and w i irk places and the figure is growing 
from year lo year

ing across the country . in other words, you can't 
call the cafes that serve them "puflc.isys " 

The grow ing popularity of the hookah is largely 
due to die fruity taste of the tOOaCO l and the idea 
that smoke passed thn iugh water will lose all the 
nicotine and tars and other icky things that make

Town housing consultant steps down over potential conflict 

Also worked 
for Ceclatmcrc 

By Samantha Brown

Hnsler. who impressed mem- 
hcrs of Oic board ol selectmen 
with his level ol cxpertis*, will

tracted affordable housing spe- 

Due 10 Engler's histor) work- 
ing with Leggal MeC'all 
Properties, which is building 
ihe Cedarmere senior housing 
development, Town Counsel 
ad\ ised there is j potential con- 
il i>. i ni interest lor Engler in his 
new tOWlt role, hngler «.is 
lined b) the I0WH (0 work with 

the to iv -established housing 

partnership and assist in olher 
key housing issues — namely 
the affordable housing portion 
of the Cook Estate project. 

The issue was brought to 
Town Manager Bill Griffin's 
attention last week. Planning 
board vice chairman Peier Pralt 
said he placed a call 10 Griffin 
alter receiving calls from resi- 
dents who had attended the 
senior housing forum Tuesday. 
Jan. 3, at which Engler 
appeared. Engler spoke that 
day about affordable housing 
to help clear up some of the 
many misconceptions sur- 
rounding ihe ever-changing 
rules and regulations set by the 
Department of Housing and 
Cojiununit) Development. 

At the meeting, Griffin intro- 
duced Engler as the town's new 
housing consultant, w ho would 

be paid using funds allocated at 
Town Meeling. Griffin had 
drafted a Request for Proposals 
for Ihe position, and Engler's 
was the only response. 

Pralt said in his eyes, there 
was a clear conflict, consider- 
ing Engler's very recent 
appearances before the plan- 
ning board and board of select- 
men on Cedarmere's behalf. 
Cedarmere is a privalely- 
owned project that will be built 
under the town's Senior Multi- 
family Overlay Residence 
District bylaw, and the Cook 
E-siate is a town-sponsored pro- 
ject which will file under the 
same bylaw. 

Engler had argued before 
both boards thai rental units are 
not successful when mixed 
with market-rate units, and thai 
Cohassel seniors will not qual- 

ify for affordable rental units, 
in defense of Cedarmere's lack 
of affordable rentals. The 
Cook project had rental units as 
a preference in its first two 
RFPs. Prall said there could be 
both ethical and legal ramifica- 
tions for Ihe town if Engler was 
involved in Ihe drafting of Ihe 
third Cook Estate RFP. and he 
immediately got in touch wilh 
fellow members of the plan- 
ning board lo inform them of 
the situation. 

Griffin said when the ques- 
tions were raised, he informed 
Engler and Town Counsel, and 
Counsel advised Engler to con- 
sult Ihe Slate Ethics 
Commission. Engler's partner 
Janet Stearns made that contact 
and reported back because 
"there is a chance the firm 
could be providing consulting 

services lo the town at a time in 
the future when they would 
also again be working for 
Cedarmere on (heir affordable 
housing unit lottery, it would 
be best that Ihey not contract 
w ilh Ihe town to work wilh our 
Housing Partnership 
Committee and affordable 
housing plan." Griffin said. 
Engler withdrew from Ihe posi- 
tion this week. 

Prall said he believes Ihe 
right actions were taken to pro- 
tect the legal viability of the 
third RFP for the Cook project, 
and to minimize the risk that 
there would be a challenge to 
the bid process or to other per- 
mitting action thai may emerge 
from ihe bid process. 

"As much as I think they 'did 
Ihe right thing' in this instance, 
frankly. Ihe manager and 

selectmen never should have 
allowed the Engler firm to 
come under retention (or what- 
ever Ihe formal status was) to 
represent the town, considering 
Ihe fairly clear appearance and 
probable reality of conflict. I 
think Ihe lown needs to set a 
new standard for avoidance of 
conflict situations by public- 
officials and retained profes- 
sionals." Prall said. 

At the direction of the board 
of selectmen. Griffin will send 
oul a new RFP for Ihe consul- 
tant position next week, after 
he issues the third RFP for the 
Cook Project. A new RFP is 
necessary because with only 
one bid. the town did not have 
a second runner-up to fall back

Speaker brings message of peace on Martin Luther King Day 



Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 
was a man who lunged for a 
peaceful society. That is a 
dream shared by Clementina 
Chery, a woman who has dedi- 
cated her life to finding the 
peace within herself and oth- 
ers, as the president and CEO 
of the Louis D. Brown Peace 
Institute in Dorchester. 

On Monday, Jan. 16, Chery 
will be the featured speaker at 
the Fifth annual Martin Luther 
King Day breakfast. I'rom 9- 
10 a.m.. members ol the com- 
munity will honor the memory 
and achievements of Dr. King 
during the pancake breakfast, 
sponsored by the Cohasset 
Diversity Committee and 
Cohasset clergy, which will be 
followed by Chery's roughly 
one-hour long presentation. A 
donation of S5 per person and 
SI 5 per family is requested. 

"She is an extremely power- 
fill speaker." said Connie 
Afshar of the Cohassel 
Diversity Committee, who 
came to know Chery through 
the Cooperative Metropolitan 
Ministry program. The CMM 
helps connect churches and 
organizations in the suburbs 
with counterparts in the city, to 
form cooperative bonds 
between the two. As a member 

of the Second Congregational 

Church's outreach committee. 

Afshar met Chery at an annual 
CMM meeting and became 
enthralled with her personal 

In 1993. Chery experienced a 
loss that changed her life for- 
ever. Her son, Louis D. 
Brown, for which the Peace 
Institute is named after, 
became one of 98 victims of 
homicide in the city of Boston 
that year. Louis grew up in 
Dorchester, and at just 1 5 years 
old. he had already begun mak- 
ing a name for himself as a 
peacemaker among fellow 
classmates in the Boston 
Public Schools. He was 
always worried about the effect 
of violence on his peers and on 
his community. At an early 
age, he decided to dedicate 
himself to learning and teach- 
ing about violence prevention 
and peacemaking through the 
Teens Against Gang Violence 
program. His future was 
bright, and he had dreams of 
becoming the first black presi- 
dent of the I'nited Stales. 

But on Dec. 20, 1993, while 
on his way to an annual 
Christmas parts with members 
of Teens Against Gang 
Violence. Louis was caught in 
the middle ol a gang-related 
shooting only a few blocks 
away from his home He was 
shot in the altercatn n and died 
the next day.

ly, recalled Alshar. as she had 
heard about the death in local 
news coverage. She said she 
was very struck by the inci- 
dent, not only because Louis 
was so young, but because 
even in his commitment to 
educating himself and others 
on violence prevention and the 

consequences ol violence, his 

life was cut short as a result of 
one random act. "It always 

stuck with me." said Alshar 

Chery founded the Louis [) 
Brown Peace Institute in 1994 
to continue the peacemaking 
legacy of her son. The Peace 
Institute works in Ihe schools 
and the wider community and 
devotes much of its energ\ to 
aiding survivors of homicides 
It is estimated that for ever) 
homicide victim, there ,ne 
between seven and 10 close 

relatives deeply affected, and 
the Peace Institute helps the 
survivors in many ways. It 
provides services such as help- 
ing with the details ol funerals, 
finding the financial and men- 
tal health resources to guide 
those affected through the 
grieving process, and helping 
those altected Understand the 
different lacets of the Luminal 
justice system. |ust lo name I 
few. The Peace Institute active 
ly works as a partner with the 
city of Boston, the District 
Attorneys office, and the 
Legislature to improve the 
policing and judicial system 

Chery said she is very excited 
lo come to Cohasset and said 
she already knows the message 
she will share God's gill ol 
peace. She said the Peace 
Institute has seven core princi- 
pals which provide a solid 
foundation for finding peace, 
including love, unity laith. 
hope, courage, justice and for 
giveness. She said i inly when 
people find Ihe peace within 
themselves are the) able to 
share it with others 

"I hope it will be engaging 
lor people." she said, adding 
she intends to share -omc "I 
the details about her own pet 
sonal journey. 

Chery said she is looking I n 
ward to meeting Cohassel nf»i

ship with CMM luvi been >«

In lacl. she has plans to bring a 
few families from the Boston 
area down with her to shaic the

"We have gotten so man)

donation is greatly appreciated 
and even the basic needs like

Middle school has its 
first assistant principal 

The first fall after graduating 
from Colgate. Sternala (aught 
science at Needham Middle 
School. "I absolutely loved it." 
she recalled. She said science, 
especially at the middle-school 
level, is a hands-on subject that 
students can become involved 

However, knowing teaching 
in the public schools would 
require her to go back to school 
to earn her master's degree, 
alter three years teaching in 
Needham. Sternala went on 
sabbatical for one year and 
attended Harvard University. 
During that year she completed 
the necessary coursework to 
earn her master's degree in 
administration. She also com- 
pleted an internship which 
gave her a "flavor" of middle 
school administration. "Here I 
am a year later." she said. 

Sternala's first official day on 
the job was July I, which 
allowed her some time to 
become acquainted with the 
building and the staff before 
the school year got under way. 
During the hiring process, she 
was brought in for six rounds 
of interviews "which speaks to 
the expectations of Cohasset as 
a community," she said. 

Over several years, the 
school department has been 
making the transition from a 
junior/senior school encom- 
passing grades seven through 
12. to a middle school — as 
separate as it can be under the 
same roof — encompassing 
grades six through eight. Part 
of that transition was bringing 
on a full-time middle school 
administrator. Now there is one 
assistant principal at both the 
middle school and high school, 
and one principal that oversees 
both schools. 

Sternala has jumped into her 
new role with both feet. Along 
with helping to make a smooth 
transition into a separate mid- 


Beth Sternala. assistant principal at the middle school, looks 
over the criteria for a science project in Mrs. Susan Ilorigan 's 
six giude class. The pro/eel was based on the "Apprentice " 
where sixth-graders try to solicit money firm investors, including 
civating a brochure and singing a jingle, alter demonstrating 
their mlleixoaster 

About new 
assistant principal 

Name: Beth Sternala 
Occupation: Middle- 
School Assistant Principal

Education: Bachelor's 
degree in psychology and 
education from Colgate

Current residence: Hull. 


Marital status: engaged 

die school — which will 
include grades six through 
eight operating on the same 
schedule and events arc more 
regularly planned for the entire 
middle school — she would 
like to see an increase in extra- 
curricular activities and elec- 
tives for students.

She would also like to contin- 
ue the increased communica- 
tion with parents through 
updates on the school Web site, 
telephone messages via the 
Connect -lid system, and a mid- 
dle-school newsletter. She 
said she hopes to begin offer- 
ing informal monthly coffee 
hours with parents, as another 
way to help encourage the flow 
of information. 

One other goal Sternala said 
she would like to see accom- 
plished soon, is/fixing the mid- 
dle-school 'tioar buzzer 
enabling the fiddle school to 
admit its own visitors. Because 
school doors are locked during 
the day. visitors to the middle

school for meetings in the 

When not at school, Sternala 
said she likes to run and she 
has competed in marathons. In 
addition. Sternala is engaged 
so getting ready lor the wed- 
ding is a lop priority during her 
free lime. "I like structural 
Work, so event planning is right 
up m\ alley." she saiS 
Sternala's husband-to-be is a 
special needs teacher in 
Needham whom she met wh$S 
leaching science in that town's 
middle school. 

Sternala said she also enjoyS 
traveling and said because she 
keeps in touch with many 
friends from high school and 
college, she often takes week- 
end trips to New York Cit) Or 
Chicago to visit with them. 
This past summer, Sternaja 
also took a cross-country road

Flint, the former owner, for per- 
mission to have an expert come 
ontt i his property to find when; the 
oil was coming from, but had a >n- 
sistently been denied. She said 
now that there are plans to build 
live homes on the property, "There 
is going to be a lot of moving earth 
and we don't know what's down 
there. There could be more." 

Ragno said the property is com- 
pletely safe and abutters have noth-

struction. "We wanted to know 
before we bought iU" if there was 
oil underground and he said he 
was told by an expert that it is 
"highly unlikely any contamina-

He said a letter to that effect should 
have been sent to the board of

had a copy.

Skaters get back 
in win column 

By Mark Goodman 


;Jhis season, significant advan- 
tages in shuts on net has not 
always equaled to wins for the 
Cohasset High hockey team. 

On Wednesday, however, it 
did. The Skippers outshot Hull 
48- 1 1 . and also came out on top 
where it counts most, taking 
home a 5-2 win. 

Senior tn-captain Brian 
Straughn broke a 2-2 deadlock 
2:29 into the third period, collect- 
ing a rebound just outside the 
crease and backhanding it into 
the net. Fellow captain Mark 
Bouchard and junior delenseman 
Conor riolway picked up assists 
on the play. 

Freshman Andrew Smith had a 
great chance one minute later 
from pointblank ranuc. hut was 
turned away by the Hull goalie 
Straughn got the insurance goal, 
however, with 4:26 left after tak- 

ing a pass from junior linemale 
Austin Lanzillotti (three assists 
on the night) and beating the Hull 
goalie low to the right side of the 

Bouchard put in an empty net 
goal with 7.2 seconds remaining 
to account lor the final score, 
with Straughn and Lanzillotti 
getting assists. Mixed in between 
Straughn's goals was a key 
penalty kill, led by Smith, junior 
T.J. Kennedy and sophomore 
Charlie C/erkawski.

nate the first period. Skippers

Pirates back into it. The result

CHS girls top 
Abington in 
key SSL game 

By Evan Deutsch 


So, are you wondering what 
has gotten into the water ol the 
Cohasset girls basketball team ' 
So is everyone else. 

After a rocky start, spectator s 
laws began dropping two weeks 
ago as the Lady Skippers battled 
their way to the top ol the 
Holiday Tournament. 

But were they ready for a solid 
team like Abington ' Absolutely 
And here .ire the details 

Last Thursday, the Green Wave 
of Abington strutted into the 
Cohasset gym w ith the idea they 
could wash the Skippers over- 

board without even trying Then 
attitude became iheir first mis- 

From the opening lip-off, the 
Skippers sent a clear message. 
Cohasset was the wrong team to 
mess with. From freshmen 
Gabnella llihbotle's lightning 
steals to Mia Lieb-Lappen"s 
Shaq like rebounding. Cohasset 
ignited the floor. 

The Skippers persistent lull- 
court press worked better than a 
sea worm on a bail hook. 

"We really slowed their offense- 
down with our press." explained 
senior tri-captain Chelsea 
Grossman. "Because they had to 
focus on getting up the court, 
they couldn't gel a rhythm 

When asked what transformed 
the team, head coach John 
Levangie became quite animated 


Boys hoops hopes to turn a corner 

Near win against Carver leaves coach with optimism 

By Mark Goodman 


Against arguably the best club 
in the South Shore league, the 
Cohasset High boys basketball 
team plaved its best game of the 

Hosting a Carver team 
Tuesday night that is undefeated 
in league play, the Skippers 
nearly pulled off an upset, ulti- 
mately dropping a 40-38 deci- 
sion. Junior John McCarthy led 
the Skippers with 12 points. 
Senior tri-captain Trevor Brady 
and lumor Jeff Brown were not 
far behind, scoring II and 10. 

It was the learn defense, 
(hough, (hat most impressed 
head coach Dorian Bryant. 
Carver is one ol the biggest, 
most physical teams Cohasset 
will face all season, and the 
delense from guvs like Brown, 
John McCarthy. Patrick 
McCarthy and senior tn-captain 
Nick Arment nearly led the 
Skippers to victory. 

"As a team, we played 
extremely well." Bryant said 
"Carver is real tough inside. 
They have long, athletic kids 
that can hurt y ou in the paint As 
coaches, we were lalking con- 
stantly about getting your hands 
up and rotating 1 think we did a 
real good jobol that." 

Rebounding was also critical, 
and a number of players got it 
done in that department as well, 
led by Brown l seven rebounds i 
and Amienl I six j. In general. 
Bryanl says his team has been 
rebounding bvller this season. 
Others who have been con 
tnbuting in that facet of the 
game are |unior tri-captain 
Justin Alexander, scnioi Will 
Pinkus. and sophomores Jake 
t unco and David Snow dale. 

Bryanl said he was looking 
toward the Carvei game as a 
measuring stick lor his team. 
Overall, the Skippers have 
been far more competitive 
than last year, which saw its 
share of lopsided losses. With 
the exception of last Friday "s 
61-32 loss to Abington.

always did. . .Playing on the right 
wing. Lincoln tallied 35 points 
on IV goals, 16 assists, helping

.lames \\ ilsnn - 
Senior (Capl.l 
Midfielder -Hingham 
The man in the middle. 
Wilson's presence al the center 
midlield position was 

immense... Had the ability to 
score when needed, but was most 
effective as the key component to 
the Harbormen's trademark short 
passing game. . Played in the 
middle, but rarely stayed there as 
his ability to read the field and 
opposing team's defenses often 
pul him on the attack... He was 
great al knowing when lo pass 
Ihe ball and saw solid success in 
tallying nine assists this sea- 
son... Wilson also scored four 
goals... Would also routinely 
drop back defensively when 
games were close... To put it 
simply. Wilson was just every- 
where... His play in the middle 
sparked Hingham's potent 
offense, helping the Harbormen 
(21-1-1) capture the Patriot 
League title and Div. 2 South 
Sectional crown... He is a two- 
year starter on the Hingham 
team. Hingham coach Ken 
Carlin: "He held the midlield 
together and gave a lot of people 
a tot of opportunities. He really 
tried to do whatever he could to 
keep the ball in play and that's 
one of the main reasons why we 
needed him." 

Nick Jones - 
Senior (Capt.) 
Sweeper - Hingham 
Sure Hingham had plenty of 
firepower, but you know what 
they say about winning champi- 
onships... The leader on the 
defensive side of the 
Harhonnen's field. Jones was the 
anchor of a backfield that 
allowed just 1 5 goals in the regu- 
lar season and recorded eight 
shutouts... A great reader of the 
field. Jones' ability to clear Ihe 
ball with purpose often got the 
I larbormen's potent attack going 
from the back... He himself con- 
tributed six points on four goals, 
two assists... A Patriot League 
All-star, Jones was called upon to 
mark some of the team's most 
talenled strikers and he did so 
seemingly with ease... Shut 
down fellow All-Scholastic Scott 
Guff in a key 1 -0 win over Silver 
Lake, which ultimately sealed 
the league title... In the Div. 2 
South toumey, Jones and Ihe rest 
ol the HHS defense allowed just 
three goals in four games and 
shut oul Medway 1-0 to win the 
Sectional title... Jones was being 
heavily recruited by colleges and 
plans to play next fall. Hingham 
coach Ken Carlin: "He had the 
great ability to settle the team 
down. He was the best at being 
able lo gel everyone back on 
track He has a strong kick and 
w as a great captain."

Offensive!) speaking, the 
Skippers looked like a com- 
pletely different team from 
weeks past. They now run all 
Ihe way through their plays, 
often winding down 20 seconds 
until they lind ihe best opponu- 
nity lo score, This improved 
shot selection proved very 
important, especially in the sec 
ond hall of the game. 

Despite all the Cohassel 
improvements. Ahington dis- 
played why ihey have annually 
been one ol Ihe South Shore 
League's top teams 
Capitalizing on Skipper mis- 
takes, the Green Wave built up a 
seven point lead late in ihe 

game. The Skippers proceeded 
to crawl back to within one 
point ol Abington. Then sonic 
freshman magic Surfaced onto 
the floor.

Seventh grade girls 
turn in two strong 

The seventh grade basketball 
team turned in its best overall 

performance this past weekend 
in their two-plus years of play- 
ing [Dgethfll with a 17-13 win al 
Norwell on Saturday and a 2tl- 
I'l loss to Hull in the final sec- 
onds on Sunday. The Seven- 
l ps are now 3-3 on ihe season. 

Norwell had been a nemesis 
lor ihe Cohassct Sevens since 
Cohassel joined the South 
Shore Basketball League. 
Norwell defeated Cohassel 
mice in ihe regular season last 
year and then eliminated ihc 

Cohassel girls in the playoffs. 
Norwell also defeated Cohassel 
in the Abington pre season 
tournament in November. 

However, on Saturday the 
Cohassel Sevens turned the 
tablet. Alter gelling oil lo a 
-low start, the Cohassel girls 
moved out 10 an 8-7 lead by the 
intermission on lour points by 
< arli Haggi rly and a hoop 
each bj Lindsay Davis and 
Kale French. 

In addition, the Sevens were 
playing a near-llawless game 
"ii defense Their aggressive 2- 
\ /one gave Norwell lew good 
looks at the basket. The 
Cohassel backcourt ol Kmma 

Quigley, Rachel Fredey. and 
( aniline Fein consistently got 
back on defense to prevent 
Norwell from getting any fast 
break or transition baskets and 
the frontcourt of Haggerty. 
French, Davis, Kmma Musto. 
Carly Martin, and Logan 
Pralt controlled the defensive 

The Seven-Ups continued to 
plav near Haw less basketball at 
the slart of the second half, 
opening up a 14-7 margin by 
the midpoint on hoops by 
French, Davis, and Fredey. The 
Cohassel girls consistently heal 
the Norwell press and contin- 
ued to play rock-SOlid defense. 
Their lead would have been 
even bigger had several of their 
shots by Pralt. Quigley. and 
l icdey not been of the in-and- 
OUl variety that refused to go 
down ihe cylinder. 

Norwell slowly crept back, 
pulling within 14-13 with a 
minute to play. However. 
Fredey sank the front end of a 
I -on- 1 and Haggerty put back 
an offensive rebound to seal the 
deal for Ihe 17-13 win. 

Sunday's game with Hull 
once again featured a strong 
Cohassel defensive effort 
against a Hull team which had 
scored 34 points against the 
Blue and White in their first 
encounter earlier this season. 
Neither learn was able to open 
up more than a three point lead 
in a true back-and-forth, up- 
and-down basketball game. 

However, after trailing mosl 
of the way. the Cohassel girls 
finally pulled ahead. 17-15, 
with three minutes to play 
thanks to some clutch free 
throw shooting by French, who 
sank a pair from the charity 
stripe. A Hull Iree throw was 
answered by a free throw by 
Fredey to maintain the two- 
point edge. After Hull lied the 
score on IW6 more from the 
free throw line. Carli Haggerty a free throw to leave mat- 
ters at 19-18 in favor of 
Cohassel with 25 seconds lo 

However, a victory was not to 
be in the cards lor ihc Blue and 
While, as a Hull girl drew a 
foul on a lough call inside and 
ihen sank both Pis lor a 20-19 
Hull lead with 15 seconds 
showing on the clock. That 
would prove to be the game, as 
Cohassel threw the ball awa] 
OH their final possession. 

Davis, playing at guard for 
the firsl time in ihc absence of a 
regular Cohassel backcourt 
player, led the Blue and White 
with eight points on four buck- 
ets from Ihe 15-18 foot range. 
Haggerty and French had four 
points. Fredey two. and Musto 

Deja vu for wrestlers 

Fifth graders play 
well in weekend tilts 

The 5th grade girls laced two 
more strong opponents last 
weekend. On Saturday morning, 
they squared off against Norwell. 
Norwell came out shooting and 
quickly went up. 8-2. 

Cohassel got back in the game 
on ihe outside shooting of 
Oabriellc Rioux, who hit two 
long range jump shots, 
Charlotte Barczewski and 
Kate Sookiasian each scored 
two points to round out the scor- 
ing. The Fives had more scoring 
opportunities with Christine 
Chase and Sarah Fredey dri- 
ving to the basket and getting 
fouled, but they were unable to 
capitalize on the free throws. 

The Blue and While played 
stellar defense in the second 
hall, limiting Norwcll lo just 
two baskets. Kmma Smith 
and Kristin Alexander 
anchored the middle and 
Abbey Carrier chased down 
every pass at the top ol the key 
Isabella Flibolie cleaned up the 
rebounds down low. However, 
ihc Fives were unable lo finish 
their plays at the offensive 
end. and Ihc final score was in 
favor of Norwell. 18-8. 

On Sunday afternoon. 
Cohassel played a tough Hull 
team. Again. Ihe defense let 
down early and Cohassel tell 
behind. 10-2. However. 
Christine Chase drove to ihe 
basket, was fouled, and made 
two free throws and Smith 
added two points to keep the 
l ives within striking distance 

Down 16-8 al the hall, the 
Blue and While girls came to 
hie. The defense tightened and 
created offensive opportunities. 
Six more points from Chase and 
buckets by Alexander. Isabella 
Flibotte, and Ciabrielle Rioux 
provided the offensive firepow- 
er. The guard play of Fredey and 
Carrier kepi the Hull learn on 
the defensive. Barc/cwski and 
Sookiasian helped out with the 
rebounding and passing on the 
motion offense. The total team 
effort allowed Cohassel lo storm 
back lo lake a 20-18 lead with 
two minutes lo go. 

After Hull scored to make it 
20-20. Cohassel was unable to 
respond on its next possession. 
Hull got Ihc ball back and drew 
a lough foul call under the bas- 
ket. The Hull girl made one free 
throw to put Hull up 21-20 with 
10 seconds left in the game. 
Cohassel tried a long pass lor 
the w in, but was unable to score. 

"Il was a lough loss." said fifth 
grade coach Steve Fredey after- 
wards, "hut it was a huge step 
lor the girls in believing in 
themselves and becoming a 

have a perfect match. Everyone 
is beatable." 

At 112. Ryan McClellan sur 
prised everyone and finished 
second, giving him two strong 
finishes in a row. McClelian pro- 
vided Cohassel with valuable 
points before losing in the finals 
to Ion Tan (North Ouincy) by 

Probably the mosl consistent 
and most surprising wrestler for 
Cohassel so far has been Nick 
Cambi. Wrestling in ihe 189 
weigh class. Cambi continued 
his impressive performances by 
finishing second. Cambi lost a 
lough match to Ryan Connors 
(Xaverian) in ihe finals 13-7. 

Nonetheless, it was a disap- 
pointing day for both Dave 
McKenna and Jake Watts. 
McKenna finished sixth in the 
152 weight class. Going into the 
tournament. McKenna was opti- 
mistic about his chances, as the 
field wasn't as tough as the 
Marshlield Tournament, where 
he also finished sixth. 

McKenna. however, couldn't 
get it going from the get go and. 
according to him. "had a terrible 
day." Slill. McKenna knows 
whai it takes to he a w inner, as he 
was Division ? slate champ last 
year, so don't count him out lor 
another nin at the title. 

In regards to Watts, he failed to 
make a weight ol 103: thus, 
eliminating him Irom wTcsiling 
in a loumamem where he very 
posMhly could have won. 

Another notable wrestler thai 
had a pretty g<xxl tournament 
was George Miller 1215). as he

finished sixth. 

As a team, Cohassel needs to 
have an overall record above 
.500 lo be included in Ihe sec 


"Our goal right now is to be 
above .500 and beating BC High 
was big. but then we have a 
showing like Marshfield where 
everyone didn't do as good as we 
thought," said McKenna. one of 
the team's senior captains. "Bui, 
I look al February as a key month 
where everyone will be all tuned 
up and ready lo make some noise 
in Division 3." 

When asked w hom he thought 
was ihc team's biggest surprise 
so far, McKenna said. 
"Definitely Cambi. because 
everyone knows he has the 
strength and moves. He just 
needed some experience, and by 
placing as well as he has so far. I 
think that's a big boost in his 
confidence level. 

"Also. Steven Gratia (from 
Hull) is a backup al Ihe 103/1 12 
slot w ho we know we can put hi 
there in an emergency and wc 
won't lose a heat." 

Next for Cohassel is its own 
tournament this upcoming week 
end. Then that's all for louma 
mcnts. as Cohassel has several 
key dual meets against 
Rockland. Duxbury. and Carver.

Dorian. McKenna. Watts and 
Miller can provide Cohassel w ith

Another key for Cohassel was 
a switch between senior tri-cap- 
lain Brandon Smith and sopho- 
more Patrick Doonan, with 
Smith moving up to a forward 
position and Doonan moving 
back lo the blue line. Smith is 
one of the team's better puck- 
carriers, and he scored 
Cohasset's first goal against Hull 
four minutes into the game, as 
Lan/illolli controlled a laccoll in 
the circle back to Smith, whose 
shot went 5-hole into the net. 

Holway scored Cohasset's sec 
ond goal with 3: 12 lelt in the sec- 
ond period, assisted by Dcxinan. 
Freshman goallender Jonny 
Wade played one of his best 
games of the year, making nine 
saves, including a couple big 
saves in Ihe third period when il 
was still a one-goal game. 

This was the second straight 

positive result for Cohassel, w ho 
earned a 4-4 lie with Mashpee al 
the Falmouth Ice Arena last 
Sunday night. The Skippers were 
down 3-0 alter the first period, 
but goals from Bouchard. 
Straughn and Holway tied it up 
in the second. 

Mashpee regained the lead, bm 
Straughn tied il once again in ihc 
closing minutes.

These authentic Persian Semi-Antique (40 to 60 
years old) Rugs were stranded in customs when a 
letter of credit never materialized. Needless to say, 
we bought them at a modest (heh-heh-heh!) price.. 

This 'name-you-know' was forced to close his doors 
this year and we got a selection of beautiful Bokharas 
at a bargain price 

20 stores closed nationwide in this high-end home 
furnishings chain. We got a great selection of their 
inventory at a fraction of its cost.

tomers stayed away in droves! You guessed it. Building

Who you gonna call when you need money to support 
a new fall line of rugs? Hello. Building # 19? Wanna

After going through a fairly lengthy (and messy) 
divorce, this internationally known importer had to liq- 
uidate several nice rugs to keep up with the alimony

We love our rugs and we 
want a happy home for them, where they are appre- 
ciated and loved. We want you to be proud to show 
it to your sister-in-law. We want you to have a party 
for your friends to see it If you don't love the rug for 
any reason, please bring it back within 30 days..

This wonderful 2500 year old tradition started with 
Tribal Rugs which were geometric designs made by 
nomadic people. Since the nomads followed the 
grazing patterns of their sheep, the rugs were kept to 
a small size, so that the looms could be easily carried 

Once villages were established, the looms were 
set up permanently. The rugs became a way of bring-

To Irani more sleuths. Boston 
University is getting reads to 
open .1 private investigation pro 
grain through the Center For Pro Education. Leading the 
Effort is loin Shamshak. a law 
cniorccineui veteran of 21 years. 
His experience include* working 
as police Chief in Winthrop and 

HI has held j couple ol open 
houses, which have attracted a 
good number ol people. 
Shamshak said 

People event wuh varying 
awareness and experience, hut

people l have spoken to i s ihej 
are interested in observation, an- 
alytical skills, doing research 

and have experience from other 
professional areas." Shamshak 

As a wa> of finding out more 
ahoui the people, Shamshak asks 
ihem who their PI inspiration is. 

"That runs the gamut from 
Nancy Drew and the Hardy 
Boys, up in Sherlock Holmes." 
Shamshak said. "He sits at the 
top of the continuum. He's the 

Pi's PL" 

The class will not he fun and 
games, Shamshak said. The 
course runs 1 hO hours over six 
months on Saturdays Each class 
covers a module, he said, and 
w ill teach a variety of techniques. 

"They will learn an investiga- 
tive methodology - a six-step 
method." Shamshak said. "We 
inlend to leach skills that can 
apply to civil cases, criminal 
cases and missing person cases. 
They « ill leant about application 
ol lederal law and state law." 

Alter receiving a groundwork 
in investigation, those in the class 
will learn the tools of the trade, 
both figuratively and literally. 

"Tbej will leant how to inter- 
view people and how to testify in 
court." Shamshak said. "And 
the) will leant how to use con- 
temporary equipment." 

Investigators are needed for a 
variety ol work. Shamshak said, 
both in ihe private and public 
sector. Some work for the Public 
Defender's Office, others for the 
insurance industry. Many work 
to track down information for 
lawyers, Shamshak said; a rich 
source of employment for Pis. 

There are -W.000 lawyers in 
Massachusetts. They need litiga- 
tion support," Shamshak said. 

Students w ill even get a lesson 
in Ihe economics of running their 
own investigative business. 
Shamshak said. 

The need for Pis is expected to 
grow quickly, according to the 
U.S. Department of Labor. The 
number of private investigating 
jobs is expected to increase be- 
tween 2 1 percent and 35 percent 
nationally by 2012. according to 
the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

difficult to obtain the American

Why ' Because those w ithout

A recent study by the Institute 
for Higher Educauon Pol-

the increasing lev- 
els of diversity in 
schools, work-

represent continu-

ers must learn to teach all students 
effectively despite language barri-

learn ID lead all types of people.

you're moping around 
the house in the middle 
of another dreary New 
England winter. You want to 
take the family to a water park 
but it's six months till Water 
Country (Portsmouth. NH) 
opens up again and your bud- 
get gives you a dirty look 
when you contemplate flying 
your family down to Florida to 
visit Disney World's Typhoon 
Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. 
What's a fun-loving, water- 
seeking parent to do? 

The dilemma has been made a 
bit easier with the opening of the 
Great Wolf Lodge Indoor Water 
Park, in the Pocono Mountain 
region of Pennsylvania. The S92 
million resort officially opened 
its doors this fall as the first 
indoor waterpark in the 
Northeast. With the water tem- 
perature a balmy 84 degrees year 
round, you re assured of a guar- 
anteed water vacation anytime. 

My family of three took the 
plunge and drove down to the 
Lodge to give it a test run. It's 
less than six hours from Boston. 

When you get to the resort, 
you enter into a grand lobby w ilh 
a woodsy atmosphere, antler 
chandeliers and a glow ing fire- 
place, and the centerpiece of a 
Great Clock Tower with animat- 
ed forest creatures that speak and 
sing several times a day. The 
resort boasts 401 family suites 
and guests get their choice of 1 0 
different configurations. We 
stayed in a very comfortable 
standard suite, nicely appointed 
with pine bed boards and dresser 
drawers. All the rooms are 
hooked up for wireless Internet 
and are equipped with 
microwave, fridge and Nintendo 
video games. 

Further up the scale were chil- 
dren's therried suites such as the 
"Wolf Den" and "Kid Cabin." 
which feature a "room within a 
room" for kids, complete with 
bunk beds and flat screen TVs. 

The rooms are all just fine 
once you actually enter them, 
but getting in was a bit of a has- 
sle. Upon check-in, you are 
issued a wrist-band, which acts 
both as your pass to the water- 
park and as your room key. 
You're supposed to hold the band 
up to a sensor on your door for 
entry but either I am technically 
challenged or they still need to 
work out the bugs in this system. 

I guarantee that you won't be 
spending much time in the nx>m 
though. The 78.000 square foot 
waterpark is varied enough to 
keep you entertained for hours. 
Though the resort offers arts and 
crafts activities throughout the 
day through their "Cub Club," 
for children 12 and under, we 
hardly availed ourselves of the 
service. Our seven-year-old 
daughter rarely wanted to leave 
the pool area. And with eleven 
waterslides, six pools and a four- 
story treehouse waterfort, who 
could blame her'.' 

With dozens of lifeguards on 
the premises, water safety wasn't 
an issue. The only medical issue 
I was concerned about was pos- 
sibly suffering a panic attack, 
myself, as I climbed up four 
flights of stairs to accompany 
my daughter on the somewhat 
intimidating family water roller 

coaster. Called the Hydro 
Plunge, this monster of a ride 
sneaks in a 52-foot vertical drop 
that is not for the faint-hearted. A 
76-year-old grandma from New 
Jersey also climbing the stairs 
with me gave me courage. 
Although my heart was fibrillat- 
ing. I am happy to report that I 
did survive the experience, albeit 
with eyes closed most of the 

After getting that ride under 
my belt, trw others were much 
less terrifying. Some of the other 
tube slides actually lake you out- 
lide the waterpark before twist- 
ing back inside. You can tell 
you re outside when the air sud- 
denly feels cold. For the younger 
set. four kiddie slides gently 
drop riders off into the water. A 
wave pool lets you hods surf to 
your heart's content. Water bas- 
ketball, float pools and 
whirlpools are other enticing 

The treehouse waterfort, Fori 
Mackenzie, is the park s signa 
ture attraction offering 12 levels 
of water fun. mischief and may- 
hem. It's a dizzying array of rope 
suspension bridges, cargo nets 
and web crawls, where kids can 
squirt each other with water 
hoses and drop water buckets Of] 
unsuspecting passers-by below. 
Every eight minutes or so. bells 
start ringing, signaling that a 
thousand-gallon water bucket is 
about to tip over and drench the 
shrieking hoards 48 feet below. 
Watching the cascading water 
come down is about the best 
water spectacle \ou can see this 
side of Niagara Falls. 

All this swimming and sliding 
works up your appetite and the 
Lodge doesn't let you down 
here. Several family-friendly 
eateries are open day and night 
to take care of your hunger 
pangs. The main dining areas 
serve meals bullet Style (you can 
opt lor full buffet or a la cartel. 
You'll find all the comfort food 
you could possibly want plus 
more trendy offerings like Sushi 
and portabello mushroom 
wraps. There are impossibly 
cute-sounding kids' drinks 
offered like Polar Punch and 
Bears in a Blizzard. I was happy 
to find my own fun drink - 
Barley Creek Brown Antler Ale. 
made by a local microbrewery. 

Other amenities at the reson 
include a fitness center which 
actually lets supervised children 
use the equipment, an enormous 
video arcade room plus an 
Avcda Concept Spa. My wife- 
gave the Spa high marks after 
her massage and pedicure. 

A nice evening ntual is the 
nightly story time near the fire- 
place in the lobby. Kids are invit- 
ed to show up in their pajamas 
and hopefully get the hint that it's 
time to wind down. 

It all adds up to a fun. weather- 
proof family vacation. On the 
ride back to Boston. I fell pretty 
pleased with myself, almost as it 
1 had earned a Cub Scout merit 
badge, for by the end of our stay 
I was able to keep my eyes open 
the whole time on the scary ride.

Cohasset sees how it measures up 

By Samantha Brown 


^hen buying a new car, con- 
siBners often complete side-by- 
sgje comparisons with similar 
models lo ensure ihey will get 
the most for their money. In 
CJjhasset, that same practice is 
bping put into place for the 
nfynicipal budget. 

f ohasset recently received a 
"benchmarking" report, com- 
piled to help the town see how it 
treasures up against peer com- 
munities with comparable 
attributes. The town paid 
Municipal Benchmarking LLC 
-> a Waltham company that 
analyzes town spending and 
prepares reports to aid in the 
budgeting process — roughly 
$7,500 to compile the report. 

A joint meeting was held 
Wednesday with members of 
the advisory committee, school 
department, water department, 
library, fire and police depart- 
ments, capital budget commit- 
tee, the town manager and 
Municipal Benchmarking LLC, 
lo introduce the town to the 
report and come up w ith ways to 
use the information going for- 

Advisory committee chairman 
Donna McOee said the idea to 
invest in a benchmarking report 
was originally floated as a way 
to determine whether there 
might be a way to help curb 
spending and avoid overrides by 
looking at the way other towns 
operate. However, she njkI 
since the idea was floated to 
purchase the report, there has 
been a concern that the informa- 
tion will be provided, bin SOOJI 
forgotten. "We need to figure 
out how we can institutionalize 
this. Let's not stick it on a 
shelf." she said. 

The report, dubbed "The 
Municipal Yardstick." compares 
Cohasset with 20 other commu- 
nities specifically chosen for 
their demographic similarity. 
Those communities are 
Topsfield. Manchester- By -the- 
Sea, Southborough. Wenham. 
Sherbopi. Lynnlicld. 
Boxborough. Dover. Wavland. 
Marblehead. Lincoln. 
Swampscott. Westwood. 
Medfield, Carlisle. Hamilton. 
Norwell. Du.xbury. Marion, and 

Ken Strachan from Municipal 
Benchmarking explained the 20 
communities are chosen based 
oh 15 variables, covering demo- 
graphic, socioeconomic and 
geographic data. He said w hen 
the numbers were originally run. 
Marion and Hingham were no) 
in the top- 20 list of comparable 
towns, but often his company 
will allow towns to swap out 
rtvo or three of their top-20 
towns for other towns they 
would like to see themselves 
measured up against. He said 
Cohasset chose to include 
Marion and Hingham instead ol 
its number 19 and 20 towns. 
Incidentally, Hingham and 
Marion would have been num- 
Hers 23 and 34 respectively, .mil 

therefore Strachan said includ- 
ing their data would not greatly 
skew Cohasset's results. 

Al Wednesday^ meeting, the 
specifics of the report were not 
discussed, as some departments 
had not had a chance to go 
through the 250-page report, but 
everyone seemed excited about 
delving into it. Town Manager 
Bill Griffin said he has already 
been working with the data pro- 
vided. "This is probably the 
first time the town has come 
close to having this much data 
about itself and its peers." he 

Griffin said now that the infor- 
mation has arrived, it will he 
important lor all departments to 
sort through it and really deter- 
mine which towns Cohasset is 
comparable with. 

Griffin said he has started his 
own data collection process 
with the information compiled 
on the fire department. He said 
after making sonic phone calls, 
he has found ihcrc are legitimate 
reasons why Cohasset's depart- 
ment may hxik as if it is spend- 
ing more than other similar 
communities. He said he has 
found some in Cohasset's peer 
group have mostly volunteer 
firelighters where Cohasset has 
a paid stall , and some do not run 
their own ambu- 
lance service as 
Cohasset does. 
"There are apples 
and apples, but 
there are oranges 
out there." he 
said, and there 
must he a human 
element applied 
lo the data. 

Supt. ol Schools 
Denise Walsh 
said she ihinks 
the report will be 
"incredibly help 
ful." but at first 
glance she too 

noted there are some towns 
Cohasset can't be compared 
with in terms of educational 
expenses as they have either 
kindergarten through grade six 
or grade eight, and regional high 
schools which split the costs 
between towns. "We are not 
considered above average 
unless you factor in those K-6 
and K-8 schools." she said. 

While there will be much 
information to be digested, advi- 
sory committee member James 
Gilman. who has been a driving 
force behind bringing bench- 
marking lo town said it is an 
exercise that will be of great 
value. This is the most valid 
data we're going to get." he 
said. adding 
Cohasset may 
be able lo find 
ways to save 
money and be 
more COM- 


avoiding over- 
rides in the 

future, by look 

ing ai ihe differ- 
ent practices 
taking place in 
similar [Owns 
and making an 
evalualion as lo 

whether the way things have 
historically been done is the 

Advisory committee member 
Tucker Glavin concurred and 
said the report will help the 
(own decide how il wants lo 
manage itself and really take a 
good look al what its priorities 
are. He said the low n may look 
al its spending and decide il has 
allocated funds based on whal il 
values and nothing should 
change. "If the town is the num- 
ber one spender per capita. Ihal 
is a decision Ihe lown makes." 
he said, adding he is sure the 
report will become a part ol the 
discussion for many long-term 
decisions going forward.

Duxbury's bylaw has certain 
exceptions to those who must 
register to solicit. There is an 
"under 18'" clause which means 
groups such as the Girl and Boy 
Scouts or local sports teams 
would not be required to register 
with the police department in 
order to ask their neighbors for 
support. In addition, those run- 
ning for public office are spared 
the registration process in 
Duxbury, which Dormitzer joked 
some on the Cohasset board of 
selectmen might be happy to 

Selectman Michael Sullivan 
said he thought the bylaw was a 
good idea, but added he would 
like to sec some limitation on 
When solicitation must stop for 
the day. He said perhaps an hour 

"K can be very 
intimidating when 
someone shows up 
at your door in the 

— Selectman 
Michael Sullivan 

before dusk would be an appro- 
priate time. "It can be very 
intimidating when someone 
shows up at your door in the 
dark." he said. 

However, Dormitzer said he 
has found in the Supreme Court 
rulings that it is not legal to limit 
solicitation in the early evening 
because "that is the most proba- 
ble time people will be home. 
That is likely to interfere with 
freedom of speech." he said. He 
said it might be possible for the 

town to impose a solicitation car- 
few of 9 or 10 p.m., which would 
provide ample time during those 
hours when people typically 
come home from work. Sullivan 
pointed out 9 p.m. can have more 
of an impact at different times of 
the year, and in his opinion, it is 
still too late. 

Selectman Chairman Fred 
Koed said 1-1/2 hours after dusk 
seems like an appropriate cut-off 
point for solicitation. But 
Dormitzer said it simply won't 
be legal due to the rulings which 
have already come down on the 
matter. "Let's fight it all the 
way." Koed joked. 

Dormitzer assembled informa- 
tion for board members to look 
over including the Duxbury 
bylaw and some Supreme Court 
rulings on the matter. He said he 
would give selectmen time to 
read it all over, and they agreed 
to discuss the issue at an upcom- 
ing meeting.

committee and explain the roles 
they will be taking on prior to the 
committee being formed. Griffin 
said having a group of people 
that can build institutional 
knowledge will be indispensable 
in the future. 

Griffin said one of the major 
projects the committee will han- 
dle is finalizing the town's draft 
affordable housing plan so that it 
can be adopted and become part 
of the town's master plan. The 
committee will also play a role in

senior housing projects. 

Selectmen asked interested 
candidates to come before the 
board for an introduction 
Tuesday. Carlson was the only 
one able to attend, which means 
the three other candidates will be 
scheduled for upcoming meet- 

Carlson said she has a great 
interest in affordable housing for 
a variety of reasons. Being ol 
"that age," where her children are 
out of the house and downsizing 
is beginning to sound like a good 
option, she has become very 
interested in the options available 
for those 55 and older. In addi- 
tion, the 33-year resident has a 
background working VKjfh Fleet 
Bank on various affordable hous- 
ing projects from the 1980s 
through the 1990s which she 
believes could be beneficial for 
the town. 

"What really got to me was that 
so much work had been done by 
so many people in Cohasset over 
the past few years and they came 
up with a project for which there 
is no population. I thought, 'how 
can that be'?' she said, referring 
to the Cook project. While the 
project has an affordable compo- 
nent. Cohasset residents won't 
qualify to live there because they 
can't pass the asset tests required 
by the state. 

Carlson said she is very familiar 
with the different rules and regu- 
lations that govern affordable 
housing. She said it is important 
lor the town to realize the defini- 
tion of "affordable" is different 
for everyone and the town has to 
make sure it is truly providing for 
the needs of its citizens. 

Crijfin said he will likeh be 
appointing « new housing con- 
sultant by the last week oj 
January. In the meantime, 
selectmen will continue to hold 
informal interview* with inter- 
ested candidates. Any residents 
who are interested in participat- 
ing on the committee should 
send a letter of interest to the 
hoard of selectmen at 41 
Highland Avenue. 

Cedarmere project 
is moving ahead 

Jim Smalanskas of Leggal 
McCall Properties, which is 
building the Cedarmere 
senior housing develop- 
ment, came before the plan- 
ning board Jan. II to give 
an update on progress being 
made. Smalanskas said to 
date, two foundations have 
been poured and construc- 
tion on those units should 
begin within the next two 
weeks. Construction will 
begin on additional units in 
the spring. 

Smalanskas said there has 
been some blasting taking 
place on the site during this 
phase of construction and it 
should be finished within 
two weeks. He said resi- 
dents who are not within 
the area required for notice 
of blasting may call the 
Cedarmere office at (781)

mation on the blasting

Zoning changes slated 
For Town Meeting docket 

Downtown floated 
as top priority 

By Samantha Brown 


The stage has been set lor some 
significant zoning issues to come 
jxTore Town Meeting April I. 
Tuesday was the deadline to sub- 
mit articles for the Warrant, and 
the planning board has drafted 
live for the town's consideration. 

The recommendations come, in 
purl, as a result of work done h\ 
the economic growth and devel- 
opment committee. The group 
has been working together sin^c 
October to come up with ideas on 
now to boost commercial tax 
revenue in Cohasset. 

Planning board member Mike 
Westcott. who is an ex-olTicio 
member of the economic growth 
and development committee, 
has kept the planning board 
abreast o| that committee's work 
lo date. 

On the table is reducing the 
amount of parking spaces 
required in the highway, technol- 
ogy, and light industry business 
districts — essentially RtC. 3A. 
With a reduction in parking space 
requirements Irom 10 to live 
parking space- per I .(XX) square 
feel of public space, businesses 
would be encouraged to expand 
and make the most out ol then 
property. Taxes are charged by 
the square foot, which means 
bigger buildings provide more 
|ax revenue lor the lown. 
.Transit Oriented Districts, 
which allow for changes in local 
/.oning regulations in those areas 
within a specific distance from 
public transportation, arc also 
getting support. TODs encour- 
age mixed-use buildings that pro- 
vide services lor commuters at 
giound level and some apart- 
ments on the upper levels. 

To go along with the theme ol 
mixed-use development, the 
planning board and economic 
growth and development com- 
mittee are also in favor of re/i ii- 
ing the downtown village disinct 
in encourage mixed-use develop- 
ment. That means zoning 
requirements w ould he amended 

to make it possible to have build- 
ings which have office or retail 
space on the lower level, and res 
idential above. 

Planning board member Peter 
Pratt said while he did not want 
to £ive some articles priority over 
the others, as they are all equally 
important, the zoning which 
deals with the downtown busi- 
ness district should be at the top 
of the list. He said local develop- 
er Wayne Sawchuk has a plan to 
build senior housing in the vil- 
lage and local zoning regulations 
are stalling its progress 

Sawchuk and his business pari- 
ner Robert Fester of Dresden. 
Maine, have plans lo upgrade the 
Samuel Bales House, also known 
as the "1811 building." 
houses businesses located at 35 
to 39 South Main St., including 

Bia Bistro. Currently, the build 

ing has two apartments on the 
upper level, which Sawchuk said 
will remain the same. Business 
tenants in the lower levels would 
also keep iheir spaces. 

Sawchuk said he would like lo 
build a three-Story building 
behind the 1 HI 1 building that 
will have retail or office space on 
the first floor, six apartmenls on 
the second lloor. and six apart- 
ments on the third floor 
Sawchuk said he envisions the 
entire building creating more 
pedestrian traffic How for the 
businesses that already operate in 
Ihe village. 

However, zoning regulations in 
the downtown business district 
have precluded Sawchuk rxQfll 
being able to bring his visum lo 
fruilion. While ihe planning 
bo.ird gave ils OK. the zoning 
rx ard of appeals stopped the pro- 
ject in ils tracks because il would 
require variances, which are dil 
licultlo obtain. 

Prall said Sawchuk and his 
learn have been "pushed Irom 
pillar lo posi unfairly in this 
building. He has neither bylaw 
change nor zoning relief." 

In addition, Prall said he 
believes it is time to put one ol 
Ihe town's newest zoning bylaws 
to rest and sunsel the Senioi 
Multi family Residence Overlay 
District bylaw. The town adopt 

ed Ihe overlay bylaw at the 
November 2002 Special 7o«n 
Meeting, as a way lo gel CM Irom 
under the threat ol JOB projects 
Under 40B. developers can come 
into a town and build senjfll 
housing complexes which pro 
vide affordable housing options, 
bul skirl around local zoning reg 
ulations. The slate ultimately has 
the final say on what is built with 
40B projects. 

Developers w ho build projects 
under the SMROL) bylaw are 
allowed to build more densely 
than the town's zoning regula- 
tions allow 1 10 unils pel acre) In 

return, 25 percent oi ihe project's 

units musl be deemed allordablc 
by slate standards Allordablc 
units musl remain allordablc fn 
a minimum ol 30 years 

Prall said he Would like lo sec 
Ihe Cook Estate which is the 
second and most current project 
to file under ihe SMROD bylaw 
— as ihe lasi development buill 
under Ihe bylaw "We need lo gel 
control of Ihe inulli-lamily devel 
OpmentS," he said. 

However. Wesicolt said he wa- 
ver) concerned ahum potential!) 
sunselting the SMROD bylaw 
He said even though ihe artiJc il 
passed, would allow Ihe C'iMik 
Estate to move lorward at 
planned, people "led M»p65St0n 
ate about il that he could sic ih, 
bylaw change turning into 

Planning board member Siuan 
Ivimey said il ihe board is able ti i 
gel Ihe word oul in |he puhlu 
aboul Ihe sunsctimg and makv 
sure residents undcrsland it will 
not ailed Ihe Cook Drojet I in any 
way. there may nol be a- man] 
problems as Wcslcoii anticipates 

Pratt said he would like lo see 

another bylaw amended. He said 
while il has come up before, he 
would like lo see Ihe large home- 
site plan review bylaw amended 
to give ihe planning hoard a foil 
regulatory approach" lo large 
home review 

While chairman Al Mix ire said 
he thought the ideas weie good, 
he pointed out ihey would make 
"several changes to the lown's 
bylaws. It could be a lopMjcs 
nightmare " 

Mix ire suggested rather than 
bringing six articles forward Rn 
the spring Town Meeting, 

"Maybe we should msi pa three 

ready lor priinelime the Others 
won't die a slow death, ihev rOBJ 
|us| have lo wail until the MM 
Town Meeting." 

"None ol these is a slam dunk 
it's very tricky lo gel ihem 
passed,' he said 

Pratt said the articles would be

Cohasset welcomes Julie 
Moir Messervy discussing 
"Outside the Not So Big House: 
Creating the Landscape of 
Home", on Thu. Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. 
at Buttonwood Books. Ms. 
Messervy will host a power 
point presentation and a ques- 
tion and answer discussion 
about her new book written 
with Sarah Susanka. In the 
book, these two experts show 
homeowners and professionals 
how to break down design bar- 
riers between the home and its 
surroundings to create a unified 
design — the landscape of 
home. Messervy writes. A 
home is more than mere shelter 
— il is our own special realm 
upon the earth. " Outside the 
Not So Big House" is about 
inhabiting the broader land- 
scape of home rather than sim- 
ply existing in a house. 

Refreshments will be served. 
This is a tree event and the pub- 
lic is most welcome. If you are

Deer Hill School to pilot new 
internet-based enrichment program 

By Samantha Brown 


Deer Hill will soon be piloting 
a new kind of learning program. 
For 30-days, some fifth-grade 
students will be chosen lo test out 
the Renzulli Learning System, 
which uses the same teaching 
methods provided in gifted edu- 
cation programs to students from 
all ability levels. 

At the Jan. 5 school committee 
meeting, Gara Field — a former 
teacher and representative from 
Renzulli Learning who works 
with the program's creators, 
Joseph Renzulli and Sally Reis, 
at the University of Connecticut 
— explained what the program 

Renzulli learning is an 
Internet-based search engine and 
profiler that matches how stu- 
dents learn to thousands of 
enrichment activities. Students 
fill out a questionnaire which 
determines their interests and a 
profile is created based on lories 
and learning styles (hat work 
well for each specific student. 
Students must sign in using a 
usernamc and password each 
time they wish to access the pro- 

Once the learning style and 
interests are determined, the pr<v 
gram provides challenging activ- 
ities in 14 different learning cate- 
gories, l-'or example, the program 
offers activities in the categories 
of virtual fieldtnps. critical think- 
ing, and contests and competi- 
tions. While the categories Bfti 
the same lor ever) student, the 
activities under the category are 
specifically catered to the stu- 
dent's needs, based on the 
answers from the questionnaires. 

The program benefits teachers 
as well. Once a student has cre- 
ated a profile, it becomes avail- 

Students fill out a questionnaire which 
determines their interests and creates a 
profile based on topics and learning styles 

able to the teacher, who can then 
sec how that child answered the 
questionnaire. Teachers out then 
easily determine which kinds of 
activities the child likes best, 
which areas they excel in, and 
can use that information while 
teaching lessons. The program 
also provides tips for how to 
teach in a way that caters to the 
child's learning style. 

Field said the program began 
last spring and schools from New 
York City to Montana are using 
it. "This is one of many tools for 
education," she said, meaning it 
will not replace any classroom 
activities, only add to the curricu- 
lum already being learned. She 
said often children who are on 
individualized education plans or 
special education students thrive 
with Renzulli learning because it 
is catered so specifically lo their 
interests and learning style. 

Deer Hill Principal Keith 
Gauley said school council sur- 
vey s conducted last year indicat- 
ed parents wanted to see more 
enrichment programs for accel- 
erated learners. As a result, he 
began looking into different pro- 
grams and found the Renzulli 
s> stem. While he said it will pro- 
vide a need lor those students 
who exhibit gifted behaviors (the 
Renzulli system does not label 
children as being gifted, but dif- 
ferentiates that some students 
exhibit gifted behaviors) it is also 
inclusive, meaning it can be used 
by all students. Cohasset schools 

strive to provide the best and 
most diverse education for all 
students as it can, and "Renzulli 
is one part of that answer," he 
said. "It's high-end learning for 
all kids." 

Gauley said he is not sure how 
the students who pilot the pro- 
gram will be chosen, but he does 
know that there will only be sub- 
scriptions for 30 children. 
Schools who wish to pilot the 
program receive a free 30-day 
trial for 30 students. Gauley said 
there is a good possibility the 
program will be piloted after 
school because no child should 
be taken out of the classroom to 
participate. There is the possibil- 
ity the program will become part 
of Deer Hill's EMC- after- 
school enrichment program. 

If the school decides to pur- 
chase the program, it would sign 
up for a one-year subscription. 
Subscriptions run for the calen- 
dar year, not the school year. 
While a firm price has not yet 
been discussed, money to cover 
the cost has been included in the 
programs and licensed software 
line item in the fiscal 2007 
school budget, which totals 

Field said Renzulli likes to 
make the product available for as 
many schools as possible, and 
"If anything, they want to get the 
price lower." She said that is 
why the more subscriptions 
which are purchased for students, 
the more the price goes down. 

The school department plans to 
purchase 101 subscriptions. 

At this point, subscriptions are 
only allowed to be purchased 
through a school system, mean- 
ing parents may not purchase 
subscriptions from home. Once 
a child is enrolled through the 
school, the program is accessible 
via the Internet, which means it 
can be used from a home com- 

Curriculum coordinator Nancy 
Mrzyglod said she is very excit- 
ed about the program and added 
it taps into the school's technolo- 
gy resources, which is great. 
Supt. of Schools Denise Walsh 
said she thought the program was 
"cutting edge." 

School committee member 
Adricnne MacCarthy said she 
(hough! (he program sounded 
like a good idea and said after the 
30-day trial, the school will be 
able to get feedback from stu- 
dents, and track how it was used, 
and then decide if they want to 
make it available to everyone. 

For those students who are noi 
chosen to participate in the pilot- 
ing of the program, Renzulli also 
provides materials for classroom 
enrichment which are separate 
from the computer-based learn- 
ing system.

Determining what the schools need 10 continue to provide the 
education that Cohasset residents expect is the purv iew of the 
school committee 

Bui it is also ihe school committee's job to direct the superin- 
tendent to come up with a budget thai is realistic; one that has a 
chance of being lulls funded 

We're nol sure What the strategy is here Ask for the sky and 
then Ihe taxpayers Alight be relieved to accept a 7-8 percent 

The schools need 10 come up with a budget lhal lils within

Hme is growing short, the budgei season is in lull swing. The 
town side of the budget is gelling nailed down while the

No one should blame Cohasset homeowners, who pay some 
of the highest taxes in the state, lor not doing cartwheels and 
Hips over the prospect ol another override vote Cohasset voters 
have slepped up to the plate time and time again and opened 
their wallets 

They deserve to lulls understand what the school department 
is asking for this time around. 

As your eyes and ears, it's difficult for the Mariner to report 
fully when copies of budgei materials are often not available 
during the discussion at school committee meetings, only after- 

In our view, information is always a positive. Our reader,

School department should put all the cards on the table before 
any more lime passes. 

Good change 

As New Knglanders we often abhor change In a perfect

atmosphere and keep dev elopers at bay. 

But some development can be a positive. We're excited about 
the ideas floated by the economic development committee

committee and planning hoard are "thinking outside the box." 
What a concept' 

Creative thinkers and leaders are needed in Cohasset more 
than ever. 

In the village. Wayne Sawchuk has presented plans lor a mix

Showing respect for our language 


Wiujam Sprout 


Even so, 
said he 

j A national study, reported by Sam Dillon in 
*he New York Times, Dec, 16, 2005. page A28. 
;indicaled that literacy among American college 
'graduates had declined "significantly over the 
jpast decade." The test, administered in 2003 by 
■the Department of Education and called the 
^National Assessment of Adult Literacy, found 
Jhat only 3 1 percent of the graduates scored at 
the proficient level, whereas in 1992. which is 
the most recent testing time before 2003, 40 per- 
cent scored at the proficient level. The report 
blamed the "rising number of young Americans 
in recent years (who) had spent their free time- 
watching television and surfing the internet. " ll 
seems to me that only mentioning two possible 
reasons is too limited. There are. I would sub- 
mit, many other possible causes: affection for 
video games, failure of the parents to speak 
properly in the home, failure to teach grammar 
in the classroom, shallowness and superficiality 
among some teenagers, a loss of cultural values, 
and a lack of respect for the English language — 
the only native language today's abusers ol 
English will ever have. 

When one realizes thai nol even one third ol 
America's college graduates are proficient in 
English, the "Frontline" report last week reveal 
ing the academic inadequacies of American stu- 
dents in comparison to Belgian students should 
have come as no surprise. Educators have long 
known that, globally, K-4 American students 
generally compare well to K-4 students Ironi 
other countries, after which a separation begins 
to occur academically, quite evident by the 
eighth grade and pronounced by the 1 2th grade, 
by which lime American students have, in gen- 
eral, lost a great deal of ground. 

I saw this gap between American high school 
students and French high school students a lev. 
years ago when, for three years. I served as an 
Assistant d'anglais in a French lycee in Pans 
called Janson de Sailly. located in the posh I6ih 
arrondissement. Often the seniors and juniors I 
taught there had a belter command ol English 
than American high school students do, as well 
■as a much greater interest in being proficient. I 
, ;also was delighted that the French frequently 
f ■corrected my French, so that I could improve 
■ and so that they could feel proud of iheir lan- 
guage and literature. This pattern also applied 
I cwhen 1 went to Spain and Germany to learn 
.Spanish and German. Most Americans hesitate 
to correct a foreigner who makes a mistake in 
English and this allilude is itself a mistake. I 
could never have learned three foreign lan- 
guages in five years without the interest and 
cooperation of many native speakers. The gram- 
matical errors tii.1t are noted in this column are 
made in the same spirit: learn the rules of 
I grammar, accept benign criticism so that you 
will improve, and show respect for your lan- 

Of course, besides our national indifference to 
learning other languages and cultures, we have 
now an additional problem: our own President 
George W. Bush struggles with the English Ian 
guage as ferociously as Daniel Webster Fought 
with the Devil. As a result, we rarely hear or 
read the English language used correctly in 
political discourse. Instead, we encounter the 
following: aboul a month ago Mr Bush was i.ik 
ing questions from a group of reporters at the 
While House aboul the unfavorable Amnestv 
International report concerning America's 
alleged abuse of prisoners in Cuba and Iraq. Mr. 
Bush replied that Amnesty International was 
"disassembling." He ihen added, for the benefit 
of anyone who might not understand his impres- 
sive use of English, that "disassembling'' meant 
' lying." Several of the reporters guffawed but 
none was impressed. Why? The word that Mr. 

is one thing to be said in Mr. Bush's defense: he never 
speak or write English well, and, to his credit, he has 
shied away from providing ample evidence of that fact. 

Bush had meant to use was "dissembling" (to 
hide or disguise one's true feelings), not "disas- 
sembling" (to take to pieces), and he had boldly 
exposed his ignorance. 

Although our nation has gradually adjusted to 
Mr. Bush's solecisms, faulty syntax, dangling 
modifiers, faulty parallelism and olher infelici- 
tous and inappropriate grammatical impossibili- 
ties, it must be a bit unsettling to many 
Americans to know that they speak better 
English than iheir president. Even so, there is 
one thing to be said in Mr. Bush's defense: he 
never said he could speak or wrile English well, 
and. to his credit, he has never shied away from 
providing ample evidence of that fact. One crit- 
ic calls it NGEI.B (No Grammatical Error Left 

There are. however, millions of professionals 
who have been forced to make the commitment, 
overtly or by implication, to speak and write 
English correctly, by virtue of their line of work. 
They are the journalists, copy editors, TV 
reporters, regional editors, free lancers, manag- 
ing editors. TV news directors, news writers, 
ministers, professors. TV weathermen, lawyers 
and public speakers ol all ilk who fill the rooms, 
air waves and pages ol print every day but who. 
sadly, have only a limited knowledge of their 
native language. Since speaking and writing 
English correctly are essential to their craft, why 
do they allow themselves to err' 1 As profession- 
als, are they indifferent to what a professional 
communicator should be able to do: write and 
speak English correctly'' If you heard a musi- 
cian playing his instrument poorly, would you 
not feel lhal the musician should lirsi learn how 

to play before performing in public'' Most 

Americans, doubting their own knowledge of 
Iheir own language, assume that, if it appears on 
TV or is printed in a newspaper, it must be 
grammatically correct. Not so. 
Here are some examples ol whal I mean: 
/. Dr. Phil - Aboul a month and a half ago. Dr. 
Phil was discussing on his program an unusual 
menage a trois involving a married man. his 
Wife and his mistress. The married man had 
recently impregnated both wife and mistress, 
who was married and lived across the street. Dr. 
Phil asked this philandering spouse. "And whal 
gave you the right to lay with another man's 
Wife?* No. Dr. Phil should have said to lie. 
There are two verbs, to las and to lie The first 
verb is transitive. It means "to place.'' and takes 
an object, as in "I lay the book on ihe table." The 
simple past is I laid and Ihe present perfect is I 
have laid The other verb is intransitive. It 
means "to rest. " and does not take a direct 
Object, as in I //c down. The simple past is I lay 
down and the present perfect is I have lain 
down. The tendency of Americans challenged by 
grammar is to use only to lay lor both verbs, as 
Dr. Phil did. There is reason lor confusion: I lay 
is the present tense ol to lay and Ihe simple past 
ol to lie. Also. / hay* lain down, though correct, 
strikes I hOM grammatically challenged as archa- 
ic and I have had students tell me thai no such 
lease exists. Thai is w hy they are students. 

As a footnote, let me mention that, on the sev- 
eral occasions when I have had surgery that 
required hospitalization, all doctors and nurses 
have said to me. il I was silling up in bed. OK. 
now lay back." instead ol " lie back." On one 
occasion, when I had been in the hospital lor 
several days and had heard every doctor and 
every nurse make this same mistake, out ol pure 
curiosity. I asked why they did not say. "lie 
back." To a person • doctor or nurse - they swore 
thai "lay back" was correct and. when chal- 
lenged, they simply said. "Well, whatever." 

No. 1 am glad to report lhal their medical knowl- 
edge exceeded iheir knowledge ol English, 
which after all was the main point in this case 
However, do nol make any assumptions aboul 
whether a doctor or a nurse speaks English cor- 
rectly or nol. The ones I have met. as a unified 
group, do not. 

2. Dr. Phil — Last week. Dr Phil had Siarr. 
from "The View." as his special celebrity Inend. 
on his program to plug her new book and explain 
how she had recently lost 150 pounds As the 
first guest took her seal next to Slarr and oppo- 
site to Dr. Phil, he said to his guest, "Well, you 
have already heard Starr and / lalking. haven't 
you?" No. Starr and me lalking With pronouns, 
there are case endings: Nominative or subject (I I. 
Genitive or Possessive (my l. Dative or Indirect 
Object (me), and Accusative oj Direct Object 
(me). Me in this instance is the Indirect Object 
(put to in front of me as a test that this is an indi- 
rect object, nol a direct object). 

3. Oprah - 1 have great respect lor Oprah, who 
has performed many wise, positive and generous 
acts over Ihe years, and I mention her grammai- 
ical mislakes only in ihe spirii thai I hope my 
comments will be helpful, not hurtlul. She was 
once a journalist and. in general, she speaks 
extremely well. However, she - or perhaps a 
young assistant who writes her cue cards - has an 
affection for dangling constructions, mostly par- 
ticiples, which have nothing to modily. On Dec. 
14. Channel 5. at 4:30 p.m. she introduced a 
guest as follows: "After lighling li>r his lilc for 
an agonizing lour months in ,ind oul ol ihe hos- 
pital, doctors believed lhal Eric was going to lose 
his battle " Were Ihe doctors fighting lor his life? 
No. Eric was and the sentence should be rewrit- 
ten as follows: "Alter fighting.. .the hospital. Eric 
was on the verge of losing his hie ' To correct a 
dangling participle, go to the comma lhat fol- 
lows and make sure thai the next noun or pro- 
noun can perform the aCI described by ihe par- 

4. Oprah - The next day. Dec 15. 2005. Oprah 
introduced a guest as follows: "As a young girl 
growing up in Texas, people often told fenny 
that she looked like Julia Roberts " People are a 
young girl growing up in Texas' No. How do 
you fix this? Go to the comma and look al ihe 
first noun or pronoun lhal follows Can people be 
a young girl grow ing up in Texas » Who is the 
young girl grow ing up in Texas ' Jenny Then 
reWTiK as follows: "As a young girl growing up 
in Texas. Jenny was often told lhal she looked 
like Julia Roberts." 

5. Here is an example from the Fruit Center in 
Hingham. observed last week There was on Jan 

4. 2000. a sign attached to a pile ol watermelons 

w hich read. "Personel Size Waler Melons $3,99 
each." Whal are ihe grammatical errors' The 
word "personel" does not exist in our language 
and watermelons is one word. I saw the errors 
uncorrected lor several days and perhaps the 
erroneous sign is still there During ihOte sever 
al days hundreds ol shoppers walked by 
employees as well. No one did or said anything. 
My point is that we should strive to speak and 
write English correctly, we should politel) try to 
correct an obvious mistake, and we should not 
become indifferent to ihe value ol our language,

Shedding light on seasonal affective disorder 

By Steve Bobo 


You may have seasonal affective disorder, or win- 
ter depression, a form of depression that tends i<> 
occur as the days grow shorter in the fall and win- 
' ter. It is believed that affected persons react 
adversely to the decreasing amount of light and the 
colder temperature as autumn and w inter progress. 

The symptoms of "SAD" include regularly 
occurring symptoms of depression (excessive eat- 
ing and sleeping, weight gain) during (he fall ot 
winter months and full remission from depression 
in the spring and summer months, w ith no nOnsea 
sonal depressive episodes. A craving lor sugary 
and/or starchy foods has also been said to he char- 
acteristic of SAD and separate it from other depres- 
sive disorders. Other symptoms include: low mood 
starting in autumn or winter; lack of energy; irri- 
tability; lack of interest in socializing; increased 
sleep and daytime sleepiness. Women may he 
affected more often than men. 

Seasonal affective disorder has not been recog- 
nized very long as a medical condition. The term 
first appeared in print in 1985. Seasonal affective 
disorder is also sometimes called winter depression 
or the hibernation reaction. 

Opinion is divided as to whether SAD is a sepa- 
rate disease from other forms of depression, 
although there does appear to he a group of people 
that suffer with it on a regular basis starting in the 
autumn or winter and Ihen recovering in the spring 
or summer. 

It is unusual for these symptoms to be of sulfi-

Balanced budget falls short in several areas, Griffin says 

By Samantha Brown 


Whoever said less is man never 
had lo prepare a town budget. 

The fiscal 2007 budget has been 
presented, but Town Manager Bill 
Griffin said he is particularly con- 
cerned about a series of line items 
that are very important to the 
town, but due to budget con- 

straints, are not fully funded. 

Prior to developing the budget. 
Griffin asked department heads to 
come up with a budget requesting 
every item necessary. Griffin said 
while he encouraged departments 
to ask for what they really needed, 
he made it clear there is a shortage 
of money and items would be pri- 
oritized From those requests. 

By Samantha Brown 


Selectmen plan to review the 
recommendauons for some larg- 
er departmental budgets over the 
course of the next two weeks. 

At the request of Town 
Manager Bill Griffin — rather 
than reviewing the details of 
every one of the small budgets 
which make up the larger town 
operating budget — the board 
will meet with department heads 
from the police department fire 
department, department of pub- 
lic works, building maintenance 
department, library, and elder 

T feel based upon what 1 have 
recommended, these six depart- 
ments deserve more conversa- 
tion," Griffin said. 

He said over the next two 
weeks, the board should meet 
with three department heads 
each night. The agenda for the 
Jan. 24 meeting will likely 
include the police, fire, and pub- 
lic works budgets, while the Jan. 
31 meeting could include build- 
ing maintenance, library, and 
elder affairs. Scheduling will 
depend on the department heads' 

However. Griffin has a list of 
15 additional items that arc also 
on his "wish list" but were not 
included in order to keep the 
operating budget within the lim- 
its of Prop. 2-1/2. If funding 
becomes available, he would like 
to see as many of those funded as 
possible, but the town would 
need to find an extra $482,000 to 

add all 15 items to the budget. 

Griffin said prior to the meet- 
ings with department heads, he 
would like the board to review 
the additional 15 budget expens- 
es which were proposed and pri- 
oritized in his budget message 
(See related sidebar). Griffin said 
the board should also consider 
the impact on departments if fur- 
ther reductions in their budgets 
become necessary or are 
imposed by Town Meeting, 
including options for cost sav- 
ings, consolidation, and service 
level nuxlilicatioas. 

Griffin said he will instruct the 
department heads to be prepared 
to describe how their depart- 
ments are currently staffed, how 
that staffing impacts overtime 
expeases, and how budget reduc- 
ooas or additioas will affect the 
level of service available to the 

Selectmen asked about receiv- 
ing an update from the school 
department, which makes up a 
large portion of the overall 
town's operating budget. Griffin 
said he understood the school 
department would be having its 
last budget presentation from the 
principals Jan. 19 and after that 
there would be a joint meeting 
scheduled with the selectmen, 
school department and advisory 
committee. He said the meeting 
would likely take place at the end 
of January or the first week of 
February to give time for the 
governor's budget to be final- 
ized. (The governor's budget 
should include local aid figures). 

Griffin cut $900,000 to easure he 
could present a balanced budget. 

The town's side of the budget 
does not have any new positioas, 
which is part of the reason Griffin 
was able to keep the bottom-line 
figure within the limits of Prop. 2- 
1/2 — the slate law that caps the 
amount a municipality can 
increase its tax levy from year to 

to make 
t funding 

Griffin has suggested the town 
take a new approach to budget- 
ing this year and produce bal- 
anced budgets from the start as 
well as supplemental budgets 
which can be used to add items if 
funding becomes available. 

Selectman Rob Spofford said 
although the board has not been 
given a formal presentation on 
whar the school department's 
budget would entail, it is clear 
from the school committee the 
school department's budget will 
seek a $1.6 million increase over 
last year. Griffin has factored in a 
3 percent increase for the school 
department in his recommended 
budget or roughly $350,000. 

The $1 .6 million amount is not 
within the confines of Prop. 2- 
1/2 and therefore, would be out 
of balance unless the town seeks 
an override. 

"We never voted but as a 
board we have to decide 
whether we support Bill's budget 
message and send that message 
up there (to the school depart- 
ment!." Spofford said 

Selectman Michael Sullivan 
said ihc school dBOHtBMttl is 
aware the selectmen favor seeing 
a balanced budget from the start 
However, he said that conversa- 
tion should take place at the joint 
meeting with the advisory com-

year. However, he said the town 
will have to decide what to do 
about the volunteer coordinator 
position at the Cohasset Elder 
Affairs office, which is iastrumen- 
tal in keeping the department run- 
ning. Currently, the position is 
being funded by a grant "but the 
grant is running out and at this 
point, I can't hind the position," 
Griffin said. 

Griffin said he would have liked 
to have allocated funding for a 
school resources officer, which 
would easure a member of the 
police department is on hand at 
the schools every day. The con- 
stant police presence would allow 
for positive relauoaships to be 
made, but the officer could also be 
used for safety in the building. 
The lack of funding for the officer 
ties in with Griffin's overall feel- 
ing that the school budget he has 
recommended has a significant 

The building maintenance 
department is also significantly 
under-budgeted. "It is not nearly 
as staffed as it should be." he said 
adding there is not enough help to 
adequately take care of the town's

buildings, including the town's 
brand new schools. Grilfin said 
75 percent of the maintenance 
budget is school-related. The 
department of public works is also 
in need of more staffing. 

Griffin said the town also has a 
need for engineering expertise and 
there is no money in the budget to 
hire an employee or consultant. 
Griffin said he had included the 
position in the budget, but was 
forced to take it out due lo a lack 
of funds. He said the town has 
been very lucky to have the 
Grecnbush liaisons working in 

Town Hall, as they have been able 
lo answer many of the engineer- 
ing questions that come up. 

In addition, the tow n has a need 
for additional planning services

Housing consultant 
got us thinking 

To mi Editi*: 

The Manner coverage of Mr. 
Engler's sharing of his senior 
housing expertise was bittersweet 
It is wonderful that we have, some- 
what belatedly, sought expertise 
that apparently was overlooked in 
the runup to the Cook Estate deal. 
It is sad that what Mr. Engler said, 
according to the Mariner, could 
have been known and had actually 
been suggested indirectly a num- 
ber of times over the past three 
years. The bittersweet part is thai 
his iasights may now be discount- 
ed due to charges of conflict of 
interest as staled by Peter Pratt. My 
own view after reading Mr. 
Engler's saga is that he was in a 
conflict of interest but that should 
not devalue his comments. 

For example. Mr. Engler has 
been quoted as saying that afford- 
able apartment units and al-markel 
residences are odd bed fellow s in 
his experience. He seems to 
believe that developers will likely 
stay away from apartments and be 
gives reasonable explanations of 
why. 1 think his position is valid. 

However, on the issue ot apart- 
ments I agree w ith former select- 
man McMorris thai they should 
have been placed higher in the 
selection criteria as a public policy 
mailer in providing affordable 
housing. On the other hand. I also 
agree with Engler's observation to 
the effect that the town tried to 
build too many goals into the Cook 
Estate Project In some sense it 
was predictable that Goal A [to 
manage 40-B development on the 
town's lerms| and Goal B |to pn>- 
vide affordable housing to 
Cohasset residents age 55 and 
above] were bound to come into 
conflict If nothing else Mr, 
Engler's public observations 
should alert us to the complexity of 
the deal and the fact that the 
sequence of decision-making has 
been. well. odd. 

Maybe an example of this con- 
flict can be seen in the Senior 
Multi-family Residence Overlay 
District [SMRD] bylaw. I voted 
against (his bylaw. One of the rea- 
sons was that as I read the zoning 
bylaw for the SMRD. Section 
16.10.6 contains this prohibition 
"A SMRD shall constitute housing 
for persons of age fifty -five or over 
within the meaning of MGL . and 
in accordance therewith one hun- 

dred percent (1 00% I of the 
dwelling units in a SMRD shall be 
owned and occupied by al least 
one person fifty-five..," 

If thai is an accurate reading of 
the bylaw and that il is a reasonable 
assumption that "apartments" 
Can't be owned, then the SMRD 
bylaw prohibits apartments from a 
SMRD. Yet the Cook Estate is a 
SMRD Therefore, the RFP could 
not include apartments and if 
apartments were recommended by 
a bidder it would not fit the para- 
meters of the bylaw. 

If ihat is mie. then Mr. Engler 
could also have argued against 
mixing apartments and condos on 
the basis that the bylaw under 
which the Cook Estate is 
being built actually prohibits them. 
Mr. Engler deserves thanks from 
Cohasset Taxpayers for getting us 
to think hard about this project and 
to question assumptions Four to 
five million dollars is a lot of 
money no matter how we cut il. 
And, if as some have suggested, 
the town could buy the property 
and then seek a developer, we'd 
have a lot more at nsk than we do

What's behind the 
high cost of housing? 

Why are homes so expensive in eastern Massachusetts? 
A maior factor is the patchwork ol local land-use regulations governing zoning, 
wetlands, septic, and subdivisions, according to new research from the Pioneer 
Institute and Harvard's Rappaporl Institute. 

How do South Shore communities stack up? 
What can we do to promote healthy development here?

Teachers hold another 
informational' picket 

Members of the Cohasset 
Teachers' Association gathered 
at 7:15 a.m. yesterday 
(Thursday) at the comer of Rte. 
3A and Sohier Street to hold 
another informational picket. 
The demonstration was intended 
to increase awareness of what 
teachers have said is an "ongo- 
ing crisis." 

Cohasset teachers began this 
school year without a contract 
and arc still working without 
one. A press release issued by 
the CTA states that after "yet 
another bargaining session last 
night (Tuesday. Jan. 17) with a 
mediator, teachers and the 
school committee rcmain apart 
on key issues that will impact the 
schools' ability to attract and 
retain highly qualified teachers." 

The release quotes Ed 
Leonard, high school guidance 
counselor and teachers bargain- 
ing team chairperson. "It's been 
over a year and we're losing 
patience." he stated, adding 
"Fundamentally, this contract is 
about our schools' willingness to 
pay teachers commensurate with 
surrounding towns like 
Hingham, Norwell. Scituate. 

Dux bury, and Hanover. 

"We've been extremely flexi- 
ble in our negotiations. While 
we've made some progress, 
we're not there yet. The bottom 
line remains: how will Cohasset 
schools attract and retain the best 
and brightest if they fail to pay 
teachers fairlyT' 

Cohasset teachers have been 
gradually escalating their 
protests in an effort to settle the 
contract. The beginning of the 
year saw teachers attending 
school committee meetings en 
masse, all wearing red buttons to 
show their solidarity. 
Statements were read stating 
their desire to move forward 
with negotiations. 

Into the year, teachers began 
holding informational pickets or 
walking out togetrier at the end 
of the school day. A work-to- 
rule was instated, meaning 
teachers would only perform the 
duties outlined in their contracts, 
and nothing more, such as chap- 
eroning dances or coordinating 
overnight trips. Teachers also 
held an informational picket at 
the comer of Rte. 3A and Pond 
Street in December.

respectively, Both Lisa Spirito 
ol Cohasset. also a captain, and 
Melissa Murphy ol Nurwell fol- 
lowed close behind, earning 
scores of 7.°. 

"One particular girl who had a 
very great meet was captain CJ 
Himberg." said coach Amy 
Maree. "She obtained .in Ml on 
beam, a 7.6 on lloor and a 7.5 on 
bars, all of which were very 
important st ores to the team " 

In addition to Himlvrg. all ol

assets to the team. Both Kelly 
and Spinlo. captains of the team 
and the all-around conipclilors.

strong on the three events she 
competed on." Maree said. 

Norwell Ircshman Cassic 
I'acella competed on lloor. as 
she surpassed her previous score 
ol a 7.2 with a 7.5. 

The Hanover team's strongest 
event proved to be lloor. where 
one of the gymnasts scored an 
impressive 9.2. while another 
competitor scored an S.7. 

"We knew it was going to be a 
close meet because Hanover had 
been scoring about the same as 
us in their previous meets." 
Maree said <>l the competition. 

Although the meet did not go 
in Coh-Noh's lavor. the team 
was quite happy with how each 
gymnast did. 

" Hie meet was so close and 
everyone tried her hardest, so we 
.ire all proud ol how we compet-

Judging by how coaches Ben

"|Norwell| has a very talented 
team, but I lell that for 45 min- 
utes, we earned the play." Virga 
said. "I thought we out -hit 
them, out skated thetTI and out-

The game started out as a pri- 
marily defensive battle for the

Cohasset's Chuck Jaffe has been named the 
country's most innovative youth lacrosse

governing body.

Lacrosse. Jalle traveled to Philadelphia last 
Saturday to receive a plaque ami also a certifi- 
cate of recognition lor his 10 years ol 
involvement in youth lacrosse The town's 
youth pmgram started in 1996; Jaffe coached 
hoys for six years and is entering his fifth sea- 
son of miming the girls pmgram. 

Among the concepts Jalle says he has 
brought into his practices are "tac kle lacrosse" 
(which is exactly what the name impliesi and 
the philosophy of "dominant moments,' ' in 
which making a big play is more highly 
emphasized than being a dominant overall 

"If you scoop the ball up in traffic and pa 
it to the right person in the right place, and ( 
it without panicking." Jalle explained, "then 
for those live seconds, everyone else on the 
field is waiting on you You are totally in con- I

Paula Buick, who have both had multiple chil- 
dren play lor Jaffe in the youth system, nomi-

coaches in the youtii lacmsse program.

Kelly Downs - 
Senior I CapL I 
Stopper - Hanover 
As the equivalent of an infield 
utility player. Downs made her 
presence felt all over the field. . .

slopper. Downs was an essential 
part of a defense that shui out 1 1 
opponents in 17 regular season 
games... A strong and skilled

lime PL All-star for the runners- 
up (12-1-1. 13-3-1 
overall)... Opposing offenses 
found il haul to gel by Ihis talent- 
ed center midfielder, who made 
key contributions both offensive- 
ly and defensively.. .Steams' 

speed and slick skills made her 
most effective in breaking up 
plays before the) began... She 
was also a key member of the 
Hanover offense, assisting on 19 
goals, while scoring iwo her- 
self. . .Steams was the go-io per-

Kate I aRosc - Junior 
Goalie - Hanover 
In her first starting season, this 
talented keeper was one of the 
best in the Patriot League Ihis 
season, finishing with a 0.76 
goals against average, second to 
only fellow All-Scholasiic 
Caitryn McCullam...LaRose 
allowed just 13 goals and shut 
out 12 opponents in 17 regular 
season games... Helped get 
Hanover off to a stellar 9-0 start 
in giving up just two goals in 
those contesLs...Came up huge 
in a trio of big games against 
rivals East Bridgwater and 
Hingham. shutting oui the 
Harborwomen (2-0) and denying 
several chances in a 2- 1 win. . .In 
a rematch with EB. LaRose was 
stellar in shutting out the Patriot 



League's leading scorer en route 
to a 0-0 tie. . .Her performance in 
the cage helped the Lady Indians 
nail down a 12-1-1 record, good 
for second behind only EB. . .Met 
up with the Lady Vikings again 
in the Div. 2 South tourney and 
turned in a great effort in a tough 
3-2 OT loss... Just a junior, 
LaRose will return to the field 
hockey squad next season. 

Caitryn McCuJJam - 
Senior (CapL) 
Goalie - Hingham 
Was the anchor of a Hingham 
squad that enjoyed one of its best 
seasons in recent 

years. . .McCallum recorded nine 
shutouts in 18 regular season 
games and did nol allow more 
than two goals in a single game 
all season... She only did that 
three times... In all, McCullam 
allowed just 12 goals in 18 
games for a Patriot League-lead- 
ing 0.67 goals against aver- 
age... The confident keeper 
denied some of the better oppo- 
nents in the PL, shutting out 
Duxbury and allowing just one 
goal in a 1 -0 loss to champs East 
Bridgewaler. a team loaded with 
offensive power. ..Also shut out 
highly regarded Div. I 
Bridgewaier-Raynham (1- 
0)...Her solid play in the cage 
led the Harborwomen lo an 11-4- 
3 record (9-3-2 PL, third 
place). . .In the Div. 1 South tour- 
ney, the PL All-star was sensa- 
tional, denying New Bedford in 
regulation and in OT in 
Hingham's 1-0 first round 
win... Turned in a very 
respectable performance against 
Div. 1 power Walpole with a 26- 
save effort in a quarterfinal loss 
to the eventual Sectional 
champs... McCullam also runs 
track indoors and plays 
lacrosse... She is vice-president 
of her Senior Class and plans to

coach Meredith Gordon: 
"Caitryn is a veteran of the tour- 
nament. She is a seasoned goalie 
and we will miss her next year." 
Tori Popp - Senior 

Midfielder - Hingham 
This Patriot League All-star is a 
two-year starter on the 
Harborwomen squad and was an 
essential part of the team's 
speedy offense. . .Popp was a key 
fixture in the midfield, her speed 
and stick skills making her one of 
the squad's best setup play- 
ers... Not one of those players 
who racks up the stats, Popp's 
impact in the midfield went far 
beyond points... Playing in the 
middle, there weren't many balls 
Popp didn't get a stick on, con- 
sistently creating opportunity for 

the Hingham squad... She was 
also an essential part of the 
defensive midfield. contributing 
to a Harborwomen defense that 
shut oul nine opponents in 18 
regular season games and 
allowed just 12 goals... Her 
impact on the field helped 
Hingham to an 11-4-3 record, 
while going 9-3-2 in the Patriot 
League to finish third... Played 
very strong in the team's 2-2 tie 
with PL champs, EB, putting 
what was the first blemish on the 
Lady Vikings' record.. .Popp 
also played well in a 1-0 OT win 
over New Bedford in the Div. 1 
South tourney before leaving the 
field prematurely in a quarterfi- 
nal loss to Walpole due to 
injury. . .Popp plans to attend col- 
lege in the fall. 

Taylor Gorman - 
Senior (CapL) 
Midfielder - Marshfield 

Was the key set-up person on 
offense for the Lady 
Rams... Gorman's speed, skills, 
and scoring ability earned her the 
Most Valuable Player award 
from her team. . .The senior cap- 
tain racked up 1 7 points on seven 
goals, 1 0 assists ... Had two of her 
best games against non-league 
foe Plymouth North, netting one 
goal in a 1 -0 win and both in a 2- 
1 victory... The Old Colony 
League All-star was one of the 
few returning starters on a squad 
lhal graduated 15 seniors from 
the previous fall and was an 
excellent leader, according to her 
coach... Gorman was mainly the 
team's center midfielder, but also 
dropped back to center back 
when the Lady Rams (6-11-1) 
needed to protect a lead. . .Is also 
a standout lacrosse player at 
MHS and the three-year starter 
will captain the squad this 
spring. . Gorman plans to contin- 
ue her field hockey career in col- 
lege nexi fall. Marshfield coach 
Carol Anderson: "She is the 
backbone of the team. 
Everything goes through her. She 
sets up her teammates well." 
Margot Littlehale - 

Senior (CapL) 
Midfielder - Norwell 

Arguably the Clippers' best 
two-way player, helping lead the 
program to its first state tourna- 
ment berth in nearly a 
decade... South Shore League 
All-Star made plays all over the 
field... Defensively, almost 
always in the right position to 
stop an opponent's attack. . .Took 
most of the restarts in the attack- 
ing half of the field. ..Says the 
Oct. 24 game in Hull, where 
Norwell clinched a spol in the

By Fletcher Smalzel 


In the middle of a stretch rid- 
dled with South Shore Ix-ague 
games. Ihe Cohasset High boys 
basketball team played host lo 
(he Harwich Rough Riders lasi 
Friday nighl 

Coming into the night, the 
Skippers had already played 
three straight games against 
opponents in the South Shore- 
League, and Harwich would 
make it lour. Since league 
games arc so vital lo a leam's 
success in the regular season, 
Cohassel head coach Dorian 
Bryant and his team knew ihev 
would be in for a fight against 

"Harwich is a scrappy learn, 
pretty well coached, and ihey 
have a really good player in 
Ryan Soares. " said Bryant alter 
his team's 52-46 loss "We 
knew lhal they were going in 
come in here and give us a 
good challenge. We jusi came 
up a little short tonight. But the 
kids played great."' 

The Harwich boys came out 
ol the gale very aggressively, 
pressing Cohassel's guards, 
senior Trevor Brady and sopho- 
more Pal McCarthy. Junior for- 
ward Jeff Brow n proved to he a 
reliable Outlet to break the 
Rough Riders' presses. 

Brown's skillful ball -han- 
dling resulted in numerous dri- 
ves to the hoop Although 
Brown and his leammatcs had 
some (rouble making lay-ups in 
trallic. theit consistent efforts 
lo gel to the hoop resulted in 
several trips to ihe Iree ihrow 

By (he end of (he first lull (he 
"rough" Riders sent C ohassel 
to the line 10 times, while the 
Skippers finished the hall w ith 
lust lour louls. The abundance 
ol louls hy Harwich did nol 
hurl them, however, as they 
went into the hall ahead. 25- 15, 

Brown and Snares proved I" 
be the stars for each team, 
going inlo (he halftime break 
with nine and 1 1 points, respec- 
tively. Despite Soares' short 
stature, he was able to drive 
through the paint on multiple 
occasions to help Harwich 
jump ahead.

Some seniors bid adieu to English 


Chris piscathru 

The high school is extremely 
mundane following the long 
weekend and it seems as though 
there is almost nothing going on 
this week. Exciting news is not 
something that is abundant in 
this edition; however. I'll do my 
best to spice up the few events 
that are taking place. The term 
is coming to an end next Friday 
and report cards will be issued 
on Feb. 3. For those lucky 
seniors who began the year with 
English, this week will be their 
last lull one (except for AP they 
meet all four quarters) of 
English for the rest of their high 
school careers, congratulations. 
Martin Luther King Day was 
i ibserved on Monday, and there 
Was .i breakfast sponsored by 
the Diversity Committee to rec- 
ognize the accomplishments of 
Dr. King. Zachary fitkind. an 
astute young adult here at the 
High School participated with 
i ithcrs at the event. Here we go 
again, the news in the Cohasset 
High School for this week. 

• The IX'bate Team will have 
met on Tuesday, the 1 7th to 
review their objectives and 

strategies for their big meet on 
Wednesday against Bishop 
Feehan. Good luck students, 
make a point. 

• The Drama club will have 
met on Tuesday and Thursday 
in the auditorium to rehearse for 
their upcoming event. 

• The PSO President's 
Council will have met on 

• The Varsity Swim Team will 
have had a competition 
Wednesday at Randolph High 
School. Best of luck swimmers, 
do as the fish do. 

• The Varsity Ice Hockey 
Team will have had a huge 
game at Norwell on Wednesday. 
They need support so if you 
missed this one: make it a point 
to go to their next home game in 

• Congratulations to the fol- 
lowing students who were pub- 
lished in the January issue of 
Teen Ink: Ryan Ingram, Toby 
Norman. Chelsea Richardson, 
and Nicole Whitney. 

• Wrestlers have a quad meet 
on Saturday at Wayland, vs. 
Whitman-Hanson, Durfee. 

• The High School Band and 
Chorus will have had their 
annual Cabaret at 7 p.m. at 
AfJantica on Thursday, the 1 9th. 

• Juniors will be receiving 
their college binders soon, 

which will help guide them 
through the arduous college 
process next year. Have fun 
with it juniors. 

• The Faculty Senate suggest- 
ed to the administration that 
they reinstate backpacks in 
classrooms, reluming the school 
back to some form of normality. 

• SAT's will take place on 
Saturday, Jan. 28, which is the 
same day as the Junior- Senior 
Semi-Formal Dance. 

• A committee has been 
formed for the selection of the 
members of National Honor 
Society; the committee is com- 
prised of are the Department 
Chairpersons. This means that 
new students are now able to be 
admitted to the venerable soci- 
ety, and those who qualify were 
notified this past week. 

There you have it, a commit- 
tee was formed for the National 
Honor Society, which is big 
news for those juniors striving 
for excellence, but too little too 
late for some seniors hoping to 
join the club before the second 
term of their senior year. That's 
really all there is this week, it's a 
bit sad I know, but what can you 
do after a long weekend except 
enjoy the four day week, so try 
to stay warm in this frigid 
weather pattern.. So long. 

Helping the hungry in South America 

By Graham Blackburn. Call 
Guigglo. Lauren McManus, 
Owen Burchlll 


Mrs. Wells's class collected the 
cans in the recycling bin at the 
Joseph Osgood School. We recy- 
cled them for five cents each. We 
bought a chicken with the money. 
Chickens la\ eggs to feed hungry 

people in South America. 

Since a chicken can lay 200 
eggs a year, it can feed a family 
for a year. When a chicken gets 
old. families can eat the chicken. 
We hope by the end of the year 
we can collect more botdes to 
earn enough money to buy anoth- 
er animal. 

This article wm submitted bx a 

Stand grade class at the Joseph 
Osgood Elementary School that 
is studying the continents. Tlie 
students completed learning 
about Smith America and con- 
tributed to Heifer International. 
This organaation sends animal/, 
to Tliird World countries to build 
sustainable income and food for 
needy people.

ISLANDS. l-A-uador -- 
So mailer how many 
National Geographic specials 
you've seen or how many stories 
you've heard, mulling prepares 
you For the GsJapuflOB Islands. 
Hits is .i place whea' you can 
swim inches away from sea 
hi lis ami sidestep hundreds of 
marine iguanas. The catch is. lo 
eXp|Ote itK islands, you need lo 
[rave] by water. 

I went luth the well-established 
Lindblad f:\peditions. which 
operates UN Xlt-pa-ssenger MS 
I'olans heit. 

Sailing everywhere from 
VntaiCllCt lo the Columbia 
River in Oregon. Lindblad is 
deeply committed to ecological- 
ly Sensitive tourism. Strong 
parteniships with National 
Geographic and the World 
Wildlife Lund have helped it 
build a large base of loyal pas- 
sengers who. like the infinitely 
curious Charles Darwin who 
made ihese islands famous. 
WaM lo see. do and learn as 
much as possible. 
From our first landing in one 
of the ship s inllaiable Zodiacs, 
we came shiickingly close lo 
the animals. Numerous sea 
lions were lethargically draped 
across our path, and as we 
stepped around them. Ihey 
looked at us w ith only a casual 
indifference. Jusl a few feet 
beyond, we were again blocked 
by a jumble of prehistoric- 
looking marine iguanas. It was 
immediately obvious we were 
the ones who had lo make way 
lor the animals, as ihey were 
nol moving for us. 

Visiting nine islands in seven 
days, my lellow Polaris passen- 
gers and I got ihe poinl lhal this 
is a N l< idler Nature hotspot. With 
all the .ininials we viewed. 1 was 
surprised I found the birds 

-I male Frigate bird with its inflated red pouch that is expanded 
during mating season 

among the most appealing. 
Being able to walk up to hun- 
dreds of them at close range 
made bird watching far more 
interesting than that thing with 

Most endearing were the 
comical blue-footed boobies. 
Walking through a vast colony 
of them, as Ihey lifted one 
foot, bent their wings and 
whistled shrilly during their 
mating dance, reminded me of 
a Monty Py thon skit. 

Perhaps the highlight for me. 
however, was sharing a beach 

There are always numerous opportunities lor photographers- 
here, a passenger photogiaphs sea lions 

nol with tourists but with sea 
lions. Streamlined and sleek, 
curious babies came lace lo lace 
with our snorkel masks before 
teasingly veering off and loop- 
ing around again in a playful 
Most days on the Polaris fol- 
lowed the same basic structure, 
with swimming, snorkeling. 
walking or going for a ride in a 
Zodiac repeated daily. Some 
days started as early as 6 a.m.. 
when we went on optional pre- 
breakfasl hikes and Zodiac

Longer excursions followed 
breakfast and lunch, when we 
climbed into Zodiacs and went 
looking for giant tortoises or 
snorkeled with a feeding sea 
turtle while sharks coolly 
swam past. Snorkeling excur- 
sions were divided into differ- 
ent activity levels, allowing 
experienced swimmers to go 
to deepwater sites while those 
less confident swam off the 

Walks varied by length. For 
those w ho didn't want to walk at 
all. longer Zodiac rides survey- 
ing Ihe coast were offered. Two 
scuba dives and a short uphill 
bike ride also were available. 
In the evening, a short prcscnia 
lion by an onboard naturalist 
about the natural history of the 
islands preceded dinner. 

Afterward, activities included 
videos or a gathering on a dark- 
ened deck lo identify with a 
laser pointer the constellations -- 
more than most had ever seen. 
By 10 p.m.. most passengers 
were in bed. tired bul enthused. 

Lindblad's reputation lor having 
lop-notch naturalists was well- 
founded - we had an ornitholo- 
gist, a geologist and an under- 
water specialist" onboard. We 
learned a lot during lectures, on 
hikes and even al dinner when 
the scientists joined passengers. 

The array of tools at their dis- 
posal included a video micro- 
scope lor presentations, a 
hydrophone that could broad 
cast whale songs throughout the 
ship and underwater cameras 
lhal filmed each day s swims 
and marine life. 

Though mosi passengers were 
50 and older, almost all were 
active and negotiated the occa- 
sionally tricky transfer between 
the ship and the Zodiac with 
ease. Families come onboard 
mainly in summer. 

After a 40-year career thai 
included decades of worldwide 
cruising, the co/y and charming 
Polaris has seltled into year-round 
Galapagos sailings. With a simple 
lounge, an intimate library and an 
attractive, wood-paneled dining 
room, the atmosphere onboard 
was casual and never required 
dressing up. The lood onboard 
wa.s surprisingly good and fea- 
tured local ingredients and some 
LcurtJorian dishes. 

Cabins are snug, as is common 
on expedition ships, bul attrac- 
tive and with ample storage. A 
masseuse tends to a small gym 
and spa and leads stretching at 
sunrise on ihe lop deck. The spa 
even oilers a small anchored 
boal w ith a glass bottom, allow- 
ing you li I he massaged outdoors 
while peenng al the marine life 

All in all. the ship offend corn- 
Ion while still providing a sense 
of exploration and excitement. 

By the end of ihe week. I had 
almost come lo lake Ihe islands 
for granted until I was instaittly 
reminded how removed I was 
Irom the real world. 
Overhearing a teenage passen- 
ger say to an Ixuadonan crew 
member. They call this an 
iPod." I knew lhal even though 
Darwm would find his outdoor 
laboratory much Ihe same, the 
inevitable march of lime was 
finding the Galapagos. 
Rates lor 1 0-day expeditions on 
ihe Polaris (including two nights 
at the Hotel Hilton Colon) are 
from $3,630 per person, double 
occupancy. Lindblad also 
recently introduced the smaller, 
more modem Islander in the 
Galapagos, with rates for ID-day 
expeditions from $3,650 per 
person. Go to www .expeditions

Women' music 




Company. Uttte Woiw - The Broadway Mustek. 

people. Mind) Dickstein was still in grade school in 
when she first discovered Louisa May Akron's classic 
r-age novel "Lin*; Women." Those childhood memories 

Musical' which opens 
Ihis week at Boston's Opera House 
"I read my mother's copy of the 
1 honk when I was 12 years old," 
recalled last week by 
from her home in 
NJ. ^ remember 
being very torn about which girl I 
I knew I wanted to be a writer 
r Jo. but I also like to think 1 was 
4 like Beth. I re-read it when I first 
started waking on the show and 
everything came back to me. 1 could really understand the power 
' of each of the four sistersand the mother.! be strength of their char- 
1 acters, their creativity, and their passion for each other is so clear. 
' They're wonderful women." 

• A Boston Children's Theater alum. Dickstein first signed on to 
' "Little Women: The Broadway Musical" six years ago when she 

and Concord's Jason Howland replaced an earlier songwriting 
' team on the project Dickstein and Howland were new to the show, 
but die existing libretto by Allan Knee was retained. 

"We were initially given six months to write a score that was sup- 
posed to play the Wilbur Theatre in 2000 prior to what was sup- 

• posed to be a fall opening on Broadway that same year,'' Dickstein 
I recalls. 

When backers pulled out in 2000, the project embarked on a 
longer road to Broadway — which it finally reached just a year ago 
— inr Hiding workshops at Duke University and the addition of 
Susan H. Schulman ( 'The Secret Garden" ) as the production's new 
director. For (he next five years, much would change about the 
show but Dickstein s commitment to the story of the March sisters' 
life in New England during the Civil War only grew stronger. 

"What we were given was a libretto without songs." Dickstein 
says of Knee's work. "His scenes were very moving hum the fust 
read. Part of the reason that I knew that I really wanted to do this 
Z'f show was that 1 knew Allan had such a great sense of Jo's passion 
3 and her yearning to be her own woman, which I think is very true 
[ to the novel and to Louisa May Akott." 

Dickstein, who received her master's degree from New York 
University's Graduate Music Theater Writing Program, often

de Tourvsl ( Yvonne Woods) confesses a secret to 
de Roeernonde (ASc* Duffy) In the Horrttngton Theatre 
of "Us UHons Derejsrsuses" ■ 

wicked good time 
at the Huntington 

Theater stages l Les Liasons Dangereuses' 

Eightmsh-centiiry games of love, hist and betrayal are current- 
ly heating up the Huntington Theatre as the Boston company stages 
Christopher Hampton's "Les Liaisons Dangereuses." As cast mem- 
ber Alice Duffy — who plays Madame de Rosemonde — sees it 
however, the story isn't just a period piece that played out in the 
Parisian bedrooms and salons of the 1780s. 

"It's set in the 1 8th century, but it's really a universal story ■about 
immoral, amoral, hedonistic people who are participants in their u 
own destniction,'' explained Duffy by telephone recently from her 
Hingham home. "Al one point my character says it surprises her i , 
how little tilings change And I think she is n^lii |] 
One of the things that doesn't change is the kindly woman's • 
devotion to her nephew, the rakish Vicomte de Valmont, played by . | 
television and film actor Michael T. Weiss, who partners with a for- ; ■ 
tner flame to seduce her former lover's bride-to-be in this adaptation .' 
of the original novel by Choderlos de Laclos. 

"My character is a counter-balance to all the wickedness around 
her. She's just a nice old lady. Madame loves her nephew who is this 
handsome, dashing, lecherous, immoral and amoral man with great i 
charm. She looks for the good in him. however, because she is his 
protector Madame is a great lady and a very wealthy woman who , 
never had any children of her own. She has been very close to her 
nephew since his infancy. She loves him dearly and. as such, is will- 
ing to turn a blind eye on occasion. Madame is not stupid. She is just 
a realist," says Duffy. 77, who has previously appeared al the 
Huntington in "A Month in the Country," "Dead End," and 
"Heartbreak House." "She well understands the libertine nature at 
the society in which she lives 

That society was first described in the novel published in 1782 
which Hampton adapted for a 1987 Broadway production starring ■ 
Alan Rickman. The following year. Hampton adapted his play for 
the Academy Award-winning film version starring Glenn Close, - 
John Malkovich. Michelle Pfeiffer. Keanu Reeves, and Uma 
Thurman. Helping the Huntington convey its own highly stylized , 
and stylish view of that society is a team led by director Daniel 
Goldstein, set designer James Noone. costume designer Brie 
Chainani, composer Loren Toolajian who provides an original ' 
score, and a cast of 10. Creative teams may alter the look of the 
piece, but the stoty remains the same. 

"This is a complicated play about some very wicked people who 
ultimately get what they deserve. Goodness knows, we live in a 
naughty world. We always have." says Duffy. "There really isn't 
anything too strange about what these characters are doing. Every 
generation has these sorts of people. "

say researchers who dispatched 
teams of listeners to heavy metal, 
pop. and country rockabilly con- 
certs. The listeners ranged in age 
from 17 to 54, and before the 
concerts, each had undergone an 
audiogram, which showed that 
all had (neari normal hearing 
"thresholds'" (softest sound that 
one can hear on an audiogram). 
Teams of two were assigned to sit 
together at different locations in 
concert halls, from front to rear 
and side to side. Only one mem- 
ber of each team wore earplugs. 
After the concerts, when the 
audiograms were administered 
again. 64% of those not wearing 
earplugs had significant thres- 
hold shifts, compared with 27%

temporary craft on their head. Traditionally thought of as makers 
ol functional art. the craft artists In The Edges of Grace have 
created familiar craft objects that are commentaries on contro- 
versial, and often uncomfortable, topics. Erotic Jewelry, unortho

Developers hit roadblock 
for Gastle Road subdivision 

Januarv 27. 2m, cohasset i 

By Samantha Brown 


The public hearing lor the 
proposed Caslle Road subdivi- 
sion has been continued for ai 
least another two weeks. 

{Issues concerning frontage 
a)id access may have caused a 
sjight roadblock for develop- 
ers, who are trying to build five 
r|ew single family homes on 
tjie 14-acre site, accessed off 
(jastle Road, which is off 
Jjouth Main Street. 

1 Business partners David 
Calhoun and Tom Ragno of 
king Taylor Cohasset. LLC 
dame before the planning 
Hoard Wednesday to continue 
the public hearing for the pro- 
ject. Early on in the discus- 
sion, planning board member 
Stuart Ivimey asked developers 
i (hey were intending on 
building Castle Road up to 
subdivision standards. When 
developers replied they did not. 
Ivimey said, "Then I have a 
very big problem with you 

having frontage — none of 
these lots has frontage." 

For a subdivision to be built, 
it is required to have frontage 
on an accepted public way. 
Board members disagreed 
whether Castle Road, located 
off South Main Street, provides 
the frontage necessary for 

Ivimey said Castle Road "is 
currently a trail" and if it is not 
going to be built to subdivision 
standards, he does not see how 
it can provide the frontage the 
development will need. 

But member Bob Sturdy said 
the town's bylaws allow the 
board to waive subdivision 
requirements in special cir- 
cumstances. He said bringing 
the roadway up to standard 
would impact abutting wet- 
lands. In addition, the devel- 
opment has another means of 
access through a Cedarmerc 
roadway called Manor Way 

Developers plan to build five 
homes on the 14 acre site, and 

leave the home which currently 
exists, which was formerly 
owned by Charles Flint. Flint 
had an easement over the 
Cedarmcre property which 
allowed him to access his prop- 
erty. That easement is being 
paved and turned into Manor 
Way, which will be a proper 
subdivision roadway. That 
roadway will essentially be 
extended to service the Castle 
Road subdivision. 

However, Ivimey pointed 
out, "We've never allowed 
frontage off a subdivision." 

Member Peter Pratt said he 
wondered how the board 
would not be exposing itself to 
lawsuits if it allowed frontage 
off Manor Way. He said histor- 
ically the board has been 
against "daisy-chaining." 
which is allowing a piece of 
property to take frontage from 
another subdivision and create 
a subdivision off of it. 

Hut member Mike Westcott 
pointed out the property in 

New Web site helps neighbors in need 

By Samantha Brown 


Cohasset is a town full ot 
generous residents eager to 
donate to causes lar and wide. 
But when tragedy strikes at 
home, the response is even 
more overwhelming, which 
can easily be seen in the out- 
pouring of support for the 
Doonan family of Jerusalem 

A fire on New Year's Day left 
the Doonan family home unin- 
habitable. However, before the 
last of the embers had been put 
out. neighbors had already 
sprung into action, asking for 
donations ol every kind. While 
there were man> generous 
offers, there needed to be some 
organization. That is when the 
Doonans' neighbor George 
MeGokbick stepped in with 
the idea to create a Web site for 
the cause. 

McGoldnck said there were 
many phone calls made b_\ res 
idents who wanted to help the 
family in any way they could 
and wanted to kmm ,\ ihe fam- 
ily had any specific needs. 
McGoldnck then thought it 
might be easier to keep track of 
donations if there was a Way to 
gel the infonnatiorj on the 
Internet. He contacted 
Highland Avenue resident and 
web designer Melissa Clark, 
who owns her own design 
company appropriately called 
Melissa Clark Designs, to see 
if she would he interested in 
creating a site to help the 

Clark said when she got the call from 
McGoldnck, it was just the thing she needed 
to take the initiative to get the site she had 
in her mind up and running. 


"Melissa had always thought 
about doing something like 
this." said McGoldnck. adding 
(here are needs in every (own 
lha( Often neighbors can meet. 
If ihcre is a death in ihe family, 
someone has a sick child, or a 
tragedy of any kind takes 
place, often neighbors arc 
reads and willing to help as 
much as they can. 

Clark said when she got ihe 
call Irom McGoldrick. it was 
|usi ihe thing she needed (0 
take the initiative to get the site 
she had in her mind up and 
running She had always eim 
sioned a sue thai would essen- 
tially provide a wish list lor 
residents and non-profit groups 
in Ihe community, and now 
that Web site, dubbed Cohassei 
Cares, is up and running. 

"Right now it is based on col- 
lecting lor the Doonans." she- 
said, but she hopes it will 
evolve into a message board 
where anyone Irom leaders ol 
Ihe Appalachia Service Project 
to the art boosters can make 
their needs known and feel 
comfortable asking for help 

McGoldrick said he under 
stands sometimes people can 

be- hesitant to ask lor help. He 
said at first, the Doonans did 
not want to be featured on the 
site, bui when they found out 
about Ihe larger goals he and 
Clark had in mind, they were 
willing to participate in order 
to give the site a jump-start. 

"This can grow in any direc- 
tion." said McGoldrick. adding 
already some of the donations 
which were offered to the 
Doonans bul were not needs 
Ihe family had. are being given 
to other organizations. He said 
Wellspring in Hull is in the 
process of expanding into 
another building and is in need 
of furniture, and furniture the 
Doonans did noi need is now 
being passed on because the 
lown was able to idenlily 
Wellspnng's needs 

"As long as people provide 
us wnh their needs" the site 
can get the word out to others, 
said Clark. "We can't pull peo- 
ple's needs out ol hats."

through the subdivision which 
makes the case unique. 

"I don't think there's any- 
thing special here about any 
thing," said Ivimey. 

Ivimey added he thinks the 
board would be creating a hor- 
rible precedent if it allows the 
development to take access and 
frontage from another pre- 
existing subdivision. "There is 
no frontage from Ihe lots to the 
street via a subdivision road. 
This is a terrible slippery slope 
we're embarking upon." he 

The board could nol come to 
a consensus on ihe matter and 
asked Town Counsel to provide 
something in writing outlining 
his position on the matter. In 
turn, attorney lor the developer 
Walter Sullivan said he would 
provide a response lo Tow n 
Counsel's opinion before the 
next hearing. The planning 
board will take the mailer up 
again Feb X.

Wind trial 


tower in close proximity and 
when the wind blows from the 
west, "there could be turbu 
lence." Turbines need an undis- 
turbed How of wind to operate to 
their fullest potential 

The MTC had 
visited the site and 
would be in favor 
of installing a 
tower for pre- 
testing of the site. 

The area in Whitney Woods is 
far away from everything, which 
would make it difficult for any- 
one to use the energy a turbine- 
would generate. "The same 

thing goes for Turkey Hill," said 

Bliss said lie had spoken with 
Kristen Burke, wind siting ami 
project manager for MTC. arid 
she had suggested the land near 
the landfill be tested as a poten- 
tial spot. The MTC had visited 
the site and would be in favor ftf 
installing a meteorological to\W 
for pro-testing of the site. The 
tower is installed at the site 
where a turbine would be located 
and remains for one year as a 
means of measuring and moirf 
loring wind at the proposed loC3 J 
tion throughout all four seasons: 
The data then helps the town 
determine whether (he turbine 
would he a feasible power 
source. There is no charge to the 
town during the feasibility study: 

The board of selectmen agreed 
it has nothing to lose by going 
forward with testing on the site

"I'm not alone in these 
beliefs," said Jenkins. 198 
Jerusalem Road. "At the April 
'05 annual Town Meeting, the 
report issued by the School 
Budget Investigation 
Committee had four key ret 
omniendalions: to develop a 
truly realistic and balanced 
school budget within available- 
revenues: to have the school 
committee involved on j 
monthly basis to become aware 
of deficits and develop solu- 
tions; to share financial infor- 
mation with the town; and to 
put an end to the idea that over- 
rules are an annual necessity."

Community to learn lesson 
on violence prevention 


At roughly 11:45 a.m. 
Tuesday. Cohassel police were 
called to the middle-high school 
to investigate a threatening note 
found in one of the student bath- 
rooms. The note, which was 
recovered by a high school stu- 
dent, references the deadly 

■ shooting which took place at 
Columbine High School in 1999. 

School remained in session all 
day Tuesday and classes were 
undisturbed while members of 

• the police department conducted 

• an investigation. Officers inter- 
viewed SCDOOl staff members to 

■ determine who might have been 
out of the classroom al the time 
the note was left and who might 
have had access to a computer, as 
the note was typed and not hand- 
written. Police Chief James 
Hussey said he feels there was no 
imminent danger 10 sludents 
Tuesday, and the school contin- 

. ucs to be a safe place. " We feel 
. we have plenty of police pres- 
ence in and outside the school to 
provide safely for our students," 
he said. 

Hussey said the Norfolk 
County District Attorney's 
Office as well as the FBI's 
behavioral science unit arc help- 
ing with the investigation. They 
will evaluate the content of Ihe 
note and Iry to identify the type 
of person who would have 
authored the note.'' said Hussey 
of the FBI invobement. The FBI 
has also been involved in some 
of the prior school incidents. The 
DA's office has provided the 
school with an expert in comput- 
er lorensics lo help search the 
computers al Ihe school for evi- 

Bui even with the extra help 
from the DA's (.nice and Ihe FBI, 
Hussey said il is extremely 
important for parents and stu- 
dents to come forward and assist 
Ihe department with any inlor 
maiion they can. "II anyone has 
any information, il anyone saw 
something or heard something, 
maybe even ihe day hclore the 
incident, anything they can give 
us will help. We need (he assis- 
tance of dw community.'' said 

With Mac y coming to town, 
the community may soon have a 
much better understanding of 
behaviors to look for which may 
indicate there is a problem with a 
student. When Hussey was a 
member of the Boston Police 
Department he worked with 
Macy. and said he was a very 
beneficial asset to have when a 
rash of teen suicides broke oul in 
a Boston community. The num- 
ber was off the charts," in terms 
of the number of teens who were 
committing suicide said Hussey, 
which caused the city much con- 
cern. "That's where he (Macy) 
became involved" to help rcsi- 
denis identify the warning signs 
before it was too late, he said. 

Hussey said il is easy to see 
there is something going on with 
CohaSSet's youth, as there are 
obviously one or more students 
who feel they are nol part of the 
community and are acting oul. 
"We all as a community have a 
responsibility when it comes to 
youth in crisis." said Hussey, 
adding Macy will help adults 
recognize the behaviors associat- 
ed with the kinds of acts the 
school has been experiencing. 
"The untrained eye may miss 
ihosc behaviors," he said. 

Hussey said from working with 
Macy, he knows he will empha- 
size the parent's responsibility to 
say "no." He said there is a rea- 
son movies and video games are 
rated in terms of age-appropnate- 
ness and allowing children lo 
watch mature movies or play 
mature video games at a young 
age could be part of the problem. 

"We're very lucky to have 
someone coming in with this 
kind of expertise and creden- 
tials." said Hussey. This is a 
great opportunity for our com- 
munity lo pull together and work 
together and gel educated on 
how to best influence the well- 
being of our youth."

Responding officers find a 
torn screen on the first floor 
of the middle school section

investigation leads officers 
lo find notes inside the

there is a bomb in the 
school. A written note on

Parents concerned about

Iwo mothers came lo that night's 
selectmen's meeting to ask 
Police Chiel James Hussey ques- 
tions about the incident. Hussey 
had attended the meeting to dis- 
cuss the police department bud- 

Cohassel Middle High School 
Principal Joel Anlolini said the 
school department "tried lo send 
' oul a message al a lime when il 
Would be most well received, 
before evening activities and 
alter parenls relumed home Irom 
a later day al work." He said if 
the message had been Bert w hen 
potentially only Ihe children are 
home, there is a greater chance 
the message might have been 
deleted before parents would 
have been able to hear it. 

Anlolini said parents should 
not worry about the safety ol 
their children, as there is a police 
presence al Ihe school and il will 
remain until further notice 
They are as safe today as they 
were yesterday." he said during 

an interview Wednesday morn- 
ing ""With all of our staff and a 
heightened police presence, ihere 
are many people paying .mention 
lo behavior in Ihe building."' he 

While visitors to the school 
may have noticed staff members 
are wearing ID badges around 
their necks. Anlolini said il has 
nothing to do with the recent 
incident. "Parenls just may want 
to know who's working with 
their students," he said, and ID 
badges are a quick way for par- 
ents lo read Ihe name and title ol 
the stall member il they visit the 
building. Anlolini said other than 
the police presence, ihe threat 
will nol atTed the way school is 
being run. which includes being 
able to bring backpacks to 

Sludenls had previously been 
instructed lo not bring backpacks 
into the school in light ol threats 
dealing with guns and bombs. 
Alter Thanksgiving. Ihe faculty, 
through many meetings, decided 
it would be OK for backpacks to 
Once again be allowed, if only 
kept in student lockers during the 
day. Up through Christmas, stu- 
dents were gradually allowed to 
bring backpacks back into the 
classrooms, with the understand- 
ing each teacher could decide 

whether they fell comfortable 
with ihe practice in iheir individ- 
ual nxims. Students are still able 
to bring backpacks to class with 
permission from the classroom 

AntoOni said at Cohassel 
Middle High School, the goal 
remains to lirsl and foremost pro- 
vide an education for ihe children 
w ho attend. He said the incident 
did nol affect attendance as 
roughly 95 percent of students 
were present Wednesday morn- 
ing. He said thai number may 
actually be higher, as some Stu- 
dents were lardy due to traffic 
problems resulting from an acci- 
dent on RtC 3A, and may have 
been marked absent. 

Antolini said it is inoperative 

parents talk to their children 
about ihe incident. "Maybe -i 
1 1 icnd of a Inend will have heard 
something and lhal may be a Up 
we need," he said. Antolini 
encouraged parenls and students 
lo come forward with any infor- 
mation, even il il seems small,

Cohasset acquires Brass Kettle Conservation area 

The town has just erected an 
information kiosk on King 
Street in a small parking area 
leading into I0O acres of open 
space bounded by Lily Pond, 
824 acres of The Trustees of 
Reservations Whitney Thayer 
Woods including Turkey Hill 
and 4,000 acres of Wompatuck 
State Park. 

Altogether these properties 
offer many miles of lovely 
uninterrupted walking trails, 
creating an interesting network 
that leads from the King Street 
trailhead to Lily Pond and west 
to Wompatuck Park, then north 
to Whitney Thayer Woods and 
Turkey Hill. Thanks to the vote 
of Cohasset citizens at the 2004 
Town Meeting, the Water 
Department — together with 
generous financial assistance 
from the Cohasset Preservation 
Commission, grants from the 
Mate and the private Cohasset 
Conservation Trust — made 
the funding available to pur- 
chase the private lots of land 
comprising this conservation 
area. Cohasset has more than 
30 percent of its landmass set 
aside as green space, which 
gives the town its unique char- 
acter by having one of the 
finest coastlines and harbors on 
the South Shore together with 
an abundance of green space. 

These 100 acres provide a 
vital conservation area and 
watershed for Cohasset's

drinking water supply at Lily 
Pond into which two tributaries 
flow, the major one being 
Brass Kettle Brook. The 
National Heritage and 
Endangered Species Program 
has identified the entire proper- 
ty and much of its surroundings 
as core habitat for rare species. 
There arc more than 70 species 
Ol trees and plants inhabiting 
this woodland. Grouse, par- 
tridge and deer make the heav- 
ily wooded areas their home 

This area is an important part 
of Cohasset's Colonial history 
dating back to 1770 when the 
Massachusetts General Court 
granted permission for 
Cohasset to separate from 
Hingham. The path from King 

Street, called Great Lot Lane 
on Gilbert Tower's hand-drawn 
Cohasset maps, was one of the 
roads that linked the two 
towns. It crosses two tribu- 
taries, bridged by rock slabs 
that once supported the weight 
of horses and wagons. The 
many stonewalls seen from the 
path are indications that the 
landscape was once cleared of 
trees for the grazing of live- 
stock. Today, trees and under- 
growth have once again 
reclaimed the land giving it the 
appearance that it had when 
Native Americans made this 
their home before it was set- 
tled. Several of the stonewalls 
follow the I Slh-century narrow 
parcels of land along east-west 
property lines that comprised 
the way the town was divided 
into First. Second and Third 

At the turn of the 19th and 
20th centuries. King Street was 
one of the major rural farm sec- 
tions of town. Just yards from 
the parking lot stood the cider 
mill shed lor the Samuel James 
Farm, which featured a one- M " I'^-r and Anna I h-mm^er admin- nw kiosk auhc iiuillu-ad ■< Hnts\ h , nlc 
horse-powered cider mill. For Const-n ation Area

geography and early Colonial 
times through the mid-20th- 
century. read Cohasset's first 
two histories. E. Victor 
Bigelow s Narrative "History 
of Cohasset." Volume 1 and 

"Histurv ol Cohasset." Volume 

Residents arc asked to stay in 
the path to avoid stepping on 
undergrowth and lo respect the 
King Street neighbors' privacy. 
Bertram Pratt's Narrative All reluse including animal 

should be picked up since this 
entire area is one of Cohasset's 
primary drinkine water walci 
sheds. Extra caution should be 
exercised when crossing Brass 
Kettle Brook especially during 
the winter months when the 

siones can become icy. During 
periods of heavy rain sections 
ol the path, particularly Brass 
Kettle Bri'.ik. can become 
flooded and impassable

Nine new 
positions sought 

By Samantha Brown 


Reducing class sizes and offer- 
ing more elective courses are lop 
priorities at both the middle and 
high schools. That goal is reflect- 
ed in the proposed fiscal 2007 
middle-high school budget, pre- 
sented by principal Joel Antolini 
at the Jan. 19 school committee 

"I can tell you there are no staff 
reductions" in either of the 
schools' budgets, said Supt. of 
Schools Denise Walsh, which will 
help the school department slay 
on course with its 5-year strategic 
plan. The middle school and high 
school are located under one roof, 
but the schools are in the process 
of becoming two separate entities 
with their own philosophies and 
cultures. Antolini presides over 
both, but each school has iLs own 
assistant principal, and in turn. iLs 
own set of needs. 

The total middle school budget 
for fiscal 2006 was SI. 946.749. 
Antolini suggested an increase of 
$233,832 or roughly 12 percent, 
for fiscal 2007. which brings the 
budget up to $2,180,581. There 
are four new positions proposed 
for fiscal 2007. including one 
English and reading teacher for 
grade six; one foreign language 
teacher for grades seven and 
eight; one music teacher for 
grades six through eight; and one 
shared guidance/adjustment 
counselor for grades six through 
1 2. All tolled, the positions would 
COS) S 1X0,000.' 

Antolini explained there are 
some concerns regarding the data 
collected for grade-six reading 
and language arts MCAS scores, 
which warranLs hiring an English 
and reading specialist. "Students 
need additional support." Ik - said. 
He added there is a new reading 
program being started at Deer 
Hill, and mere needs to be some- 
one on hand at the middle school 
to help keep that momentum 
going. He said the perfect candi- 
date lor the position would serve 
as a reading coach for students as 
well as other teachers. 

The middle school would also 
benefit from a new foreign lan- 
guage teacher. Antolini said the 
ideal candidate would be some- 
one who is fluent in both French 
and Spanish. He said by adding a 

stall member, it will help reduce 

class si/e.

The music teacher would be 
added as a way to "'stabilize a pro- 
gram which currently has shared 
staff from Deer Hill and the high 
school," said Antolini. 

Although il is only included in 
the middle-school budget, the 
new guidance/adjustment coun- 
selor would be shared by the 
schools. The new employee 
would provide adequate support 
for those already working in the 
guidance department, lo help 
increase resources available for 
students. The new 

guidance/adjustment counselor 
would deal with specific social 
and emotional concerns, which 
would tree up the other coun- 
selors io work with a broader 
spectrum of students on a day-to- 
day basis. 

There are other additions pro- 
posed for the middle-school bud- 
get, including materials to start up 
a new technology education pn>- 
gram for the sixth grade. 
"They're not being taught the 
content area in this age group." 
said Antolini. although technolo- 
gy will soon become part of the 
MCAS lest. 

To start the program. $20,900 
has been added lo the science pur- 
chases line item. Last year that 
line item totaled S2.600. Antolini 
said the program will be phased in 
over the course of three years.
